## Data Collection Teaching Presentation for Grade One

Introduce your students to the concepts of collecting and recording data with this interactive and engaging lolly-themed slide deck! This teaching presentation is focused on data collection, and steps students through how to acquire and record data using objects and symbols all children are familiar with: lollies!

This 18-slide presentation includes activities for students to engage with and for teachers to use as knowledge and understanding checks throughout the exercise.

Teacher tip: this resource is designed to be used with physical manipulatives. You may choose to use MnMs lollies, or for a non-food choice, feel free to use counters.

## Teach Effective Data Skills

With this data collection teaching resource, students can master the art of acquiring and recording data through four essential steps, where students will:

• Collect and sort: sort the objects by their features, in this case, their colour.
• Organise: count the number of lollies in each colour group. Record in numerals and with tally marks.
• Create your graph: create a pictograph on their desks by placing the lollies in rows.
• Interpret: turn and talk to a friend, and answer the questions about their findings.

This process is repeated for both pictographs and bar graphs, with a modelled example being displayed, and a subsequent student activity for each graph type.

This graphs and data resource was created by Kaylyn Chupp, a teacher and Teach Starter collaborator.
