Eagle or Whale?

This week first graders started a new math unit on collecting and representing data.  Their first task was to answer the survey question, "Would you rather be an eagle or a whale?"  After they decided how to collect the data, they then worked together as a group to determine how to show, or represent the information we had gathered, in an organized way.  The students used cubes to represent each person's vote, and also color coded the cubes.  The final task was for them to each make their own representations of the data on paper.  At the end, students shared their work and noticed positive aspects of classmates' work.
