Activity 1 - This activity will provide children with the opportunity to select relevant data about themselves by clicking on pictures that are presented one criteria at a time.
Activity 2 - This activity will provide children with the opportunity to talk about and compare and contrast data collected about themselves. This activity will also enable them to interpret data presented to them in simple graphs and tables
The teacher could carry out a class survey based on the data collected in activity 1 of the interactive activity, by asking children to put up their hands in response to each question, they could then create a tally chart and use this to graph the class results.
These graphs could be compared to the graphs in activity 2 and children could be asked questions based on the graphs encouraging them to extract and interpret the information in a graph or chart
The teacher could encourage the children to look carefully at the pictures printed from the resource and other photographs placed in front of them. The children could be asked to sort and classify these pictures and photographs. Questions could be asked such as ‘Would these classifications help them to collect data about their friends and other people?’
The activity could be made available on a class computer so that children can independently select information about themselves and print out to create a class book ‘All about me’
