The grade 2's enjoyed the experience of

Here are pictures of our two Grade 2
classes, collecting items for their collections in a paper cone.

Megan, Julia, Bianca, Emily (and the
others) brought their collection into the computer room and
after organising and counting the items, they entered their data
into an MS Word table. You can download a PDF copy of the
table they used here.
Some girls found it easier to sketch out a
rough table before they used the computer and the MS Word table.
After the table had been completed, some
girls used the Excel wizard to create their graphs. Other groups
found the online graphing facility at the
to Educational Studies to be easier and clearer.
Once their graphs had been created, some
of the advanced group were able (with assistance) to "print
screen" and paste their graphs into a Kidspiration template and
to complete a sentence about their understanding of values. They
enjoyed using the graphics to decorate these Kidspiration
templates. You can download a copy
of the Kidspiration 2 template they used here.
