Data Handling in EY3

We have been collecting organizing some very important data in EY3. Connecting with our unit of inquiry From Seed to Table, the children have been very busy cooking, creating, role-playing, and researching. Today, we discussed the idea of making a real restaurant and the children were asked what kind of restaurant they would like to make. They were encouraged to think of one main dish that could be served. We then organized these idea on a graph, showing pizza was a clear winner. With a cookie and cupcake (bakery) shop coming in 2nd place, we decided to vote between the two. The children write their “secret vote” on a piece of paper and we then tallied up the votes. It was a close tie, so it was decided that we could possibly serve both pizza and baked goods. We will see where this ideas leads to in the coming weeks….
