Statistics in Schools

Statistics in Schools (SIS) brings school subjects to life using real-world Census Bureau statistics to create materials for use year after year for K-12 students.  Explore this site for engaging resources and activities in social studies, math, English, geography, sociology and more.


The Importance of SIS in 2020

It’s not too late to respond!  Using Statistics in Schools resources will support efforts to make sure EVERY child is counted in the 2020 Census. This count impacts the federal funds that communities receive for special education, classroom technology, teacher training, after-school programs, school lunch assistance, and more. These teacher-created resources for pre-K through 12th grade also are easy to adapt for home learning. The teacher version of each activity comes with instructions that make it simple for parents and other caregivers to use it.
