Purpose: The purpose of this project is to have students use their knowledge of bar graphs in order to conduct a survey, tally the results and put the data into meaningful visual ways.
This resource outlines the steps needed to complete the task in a clear way for students to understand.
Step #1: You will begin by making you own survey question that contains a minimum of 5 choices for answers. The question should revolve around the idea that the survey is to let people in your community know what kids in your grade like/are interested in.
For example: questions could include ideas about hobbies, sports, movies, songs, fashion, likes/dislikes.
Step #2: You will read your survey question to the class and collect the answers. Make sure to keep track of all the answers so that you ask everyone in the class.
Step #3: Organize your data from the student’s answers in a tally chart. You will fill in the tally chart to track the student responses.
This is an excellent project to give to your students before a final assessment like a test or project!
This task will take 1-3 periods to complete depending on your student's age and working skills. There is a rubric attached for easy marking!
