I "Mustache" You a Question

As part of our Math in Focus Curriculum and the Common Core State Standards, students learned how to organize, represent and interpret data. After learning about picture graphs, Mrs. Ragan's Second graders put these skills to the test and created their own Google Form. We discussed what a good survey question looks like and what kind of data we wanted to collect. Our first step was to create a question to ask peers and the Steward School Community. Students came up with everything from favorite flavor ice cream, sport, places to visit and even if you were superintendent.

Students (with mustaches on) walked around the school and asked school members to answer their survey and help them collect data.

Once data was collected, students opened their Google Forms and instantly turned their data into pie charts. Afterwards, we analyzed and interpreted our information and added it to a shared google slides presentation.

And the Survey Says...

Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph.

Tech Tip;
After creating the google form have students go to settings and allow others to answer the form by unchecking restricted to students from your domain.
Create a QR code for access on the iPad without log in.
Create a shared google slides for all students to access and analyze their data.
