This activity is to be used in conjunction with the free BuzzFeed youtube video clip:
“How Special are your Physical Traits?” (2:01) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SdCoNpDzqw
(Please check this is still in operation before purchasing, or that you have a book or similar style of video as tuning in motivation).
Students watch the video clip and then the class is surveyed to see who possesses some of the different traits (not all) mentioned in the clip (e.g. rolling tongue, detached earlobes, curly hair)... students then create frequency/data tables, tally charts, a column graph and a picto/picture graph. Students are given a checklist to make sure their graphs and tables are effective and accurate, and are then given some questions focused on analysing their data.
