This worksheet will guide students through the process of conducting their own survey, graphing the data that they collect, and then analyzing their data to see what it can show them.
Included are 5 different versions of the worksheet, plus an optional back page which can be printed double sided. The master copy includes the most options and the least scaffolding. The alternative versions include fewer options and/or more scaffolding.
Also includes an editable PowerPoint version which you can tweak to best fit your own class.
---What skills does this cover?
-Coming up with a survey question
-Conducting a survey
-Assessing how certain graphs can fit particular data
-Interpreting graphs as a tool for analyzing data
---How is this respectful differentiation?
-Students at different readiness levels are working on the same objectives (understanding and interpreting data & graphs).
-Students are given options based on their interests (what do they want to conduct a survey on?)
-Students are all expected to complete similarly rich tasks, but receive different levels of scaffolding and support.
Designed for a class of students working with both 4th & 5th grade curriculum. Could be presented to 3rd graders looking for an extra challenge.
