Do your students need help collecting data and making scatter plots in an engaging way? I present the quest of the Slender Strangers! In this activity, students are challenged by using a meter stick to determine if human wingspan is related to height. They then use this data to construct a scatter plot to determine if there is a relationship of not.
In the game story setting, student groups are met by a strange group of entities that wonder about humans. Claiming to be merely observers, these strangers share their own wingspan and height data, so students must create a scatter plot for them as well. At the end of this quest, student groups must decide if they should travel with the band of strangers for further study. If you are creating your own gamified classroom, I have included blank consequence slips so you can reward or punish groups based on their decision!
Students will be able to demonstrate skills related to these learning targets:
I can explain when to use bar graphs, line graphs, pie graphs, and scatter plots.
I can collect data and construct a scatter plot to determine if there is a relationship or trend between two sets of data.
Within this download you will get a suggested lesson plan, the student lab handout, answer key, and blank game consequence slips!
