Do We Wear the Same Colors?
Data analyzation may seem like an intimidating subject at first, but it's all in the approach; choosing the topic to analyze can make all the difference. What's more, getting family and friends involved in an activity is a surefire way to ramp up the fun, as the data gathering will seem like less like work and more like a game. Have your child create a chart to keep track of the different colors that everyone wears. This activity is a fun way to hone your kid's observational skills and introduce math skills like data interpretation.
What You Need:
- Poster board
What You Do:
- Have your child draw a graph using the markers and rulers. The chart should be for two weeks and have friends or family members names on it.
- Explain to him that for two weeks he will be keeping track of the colors everyone wears. Each day he must write down on the chart what color everyone is wearing. To make it easier, have him focus on the color of peoples' tops. It doesn’t matter if they're wearing shirts, sweaters or tanks. Make sure he's recording the color of their tops.
- At the end of the two weeks, he should examine the chart and analyze the data he has gathered. He can look for information such as who wore a specific color more often or who wore the same color.
- Gather up his subjects so he can share his findings with everyone.
