Science fair project that helps you teach data management. Grade 6 Data Literacy and Research Project covers everything middle school students need to know about collecting and interpreting data for their own observation project. Great for science fairs! Learn about collecting objective, non-bias data and how to recognize it in the real world.

Everything is included to have students learn about data, collect data and present a meaningful research project.

Students can personalize their project so each student will end up with a different presentation and unique and meaningful scientific findings!

This unit walks students through creating an animal observation scientific research project. Each project will be a little different, but the example uses bird observations. Can easily be adapted for each student's animal of choice, from spiders to coyotes, whatever is in your area! There is even instructions on how to find and use observation data available online.

The final result is a presentation of meaningful data about the animals in your area.

Cross-curricular links to data, biodiversity, ecology, and so much more.

4-5 weeks worth of work for most middle school students.

Can be done independently and completely remotely.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question and accounts for it in the answers. For example, “How old am I?” is not a statistical question, but “How old are the students in my school?” is a statistical question because one anticipates variability in students’ ages.
Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots.
Reporting the number of observations.
Describing the nature of the attribute under investigation, including how it was measured and its units of measurement.
Understand that statistics can be used to gain information about a population by examining a sample of the population; generalizations about a population from a sample are valid only if the sample is representative of that population. Understand that random sampling tends to produce representative samples and support valid inferences.
