Students could collect various forms of data they may see in their everyday lives to develop their skills and understanding of data collection and analysis.
- Students can collect items that they have access to such as lollies, counters, toys, popsicles etc. and organise the data into coloured groups and represent this data in various ways.
- Students can participate in a birthday graph activity that requires students to collaborate with their classmates to gather each student’s birthday month and then organise this data and represent it in a digital or hand drawn graph.
This website also provides various activities and worksheets that are appropriate for building students competencies in data collection and analysis- https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Browse/Search:collecting%20data%20activities
