Students will collect, organize, and compare data about the number of girls and the number of boys in their classroom who play sports, take lessons, and participate in clubs. Then students will compare these classroom data with U.S. Census Bureau data for girls and boys across the United States. Teachers may choose to adapt this activity for different data if other categories are more applicable to their students.
The following item is part of this activity.
Students will compare data they collect about students in their classroom as well as analyze how those data are similar to or different from national data about children.
