- “Lady Liberty Fun Facts”
- Poster board or heavy card stock
- Crayons, markers, or colored pencils
- Copy of Lady Liberty Trivia Data Chart for each student
Students will use Lady Liberty Fun Facts to ask questions to family members and friends.
Explain to the students that they will need to choose six questions from the “Lady Liberty Fun Facts” to ask at least 10 family members and friends. Students will list the questions that they will ask on the Lady Liberty Trivia Data Chart. Have students record correct answers using tally marks on the chart beside each question.
After the students have conducted the interviews, they will depict the data in a graph. They may choose to create a bar graph, pictograph, or pie graph on poster board to reflect the data.
Students may then determine the mean, median, and mode of the data. Students will give an oral presentation to describe their results to the class using their graph as a visual aid.
Graphs and/or presentations can be assessed using a standard rubric or as determined by the teacher.
