TLF ID M025303
This sequence of four lessons engages students in sorting, classifying, representing and interpreting data in order to plan a playground for their school or community. Students choose simple questions for a survey, gather responses and make simple inferences from their data. They then create picture graphs and explore how the data varies between the different categories. Students then go on to use the data to make decisions about what makes the ideal playground. The lesson is outlined in detail including vocabulary, curriculum links, discussion points, printable cards and further activities. This sequence is part of the reSolve: Maths by Inquiry program.
