Unleash your students' inner pollsters! With this form students go from student to student asking the yes/no question of their choice. They record responses on in the boxes next to yes or no, and then tally the responses below. This is a high interest way for students to make their own graphs and then analyze them. Great for any literacy center, free choice, center, or independent work time. This is a data gathering activity students will want to do again and again. It is also a chance to practice counting, using tally marks, and writing numbers (often teens and twenties, too if you class is of average size.
Common Core Standards:
K.CC.1 Count to 100 by ones and by tens.
K.CC.3 Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
K.CC.4 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
K.CC.4.a When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object.

K.CC.4.c Understand that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger.
K.CC.5 Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.
K.NBT.1 Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 into ten ones and some further ones, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each composition or decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 18 = 10 + 8); understand that these numbers are composed of ten ones and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.
