Learning objects Leisure survey: artistic activities

TLF ID L3157

Explore kids' favourite artistic activities. Choose questions to ask in a survey. For example, look at whether kids prefer dancing, acting or music. Examine a table of results. Sort the data and use it to answer questions. Display the results using a suitable type of graph such as a pie chart, bar graph or histogram. Identify conclusions supported by the evidence. Write a report based on the survey results. This learning object is one in a series of three objects.
