Our Grade 4 buddies worked with us to collect data for their unit on advertising. The Grade 4 students wanted to know what kindergarten children like. They created infographics which their Kindergarten buddies could read data from. This has given us an authentic connection to our maths unit on data handling. We wondered what the Kindergarten children’s reaction will be to the infograghics. Can Kindergarten children produce their own infographics? It seems a perfect visual tool for those who are new to data collection and recording.
Our Grade 4 buddies helped us collect data on what they would like to do in buddy time and then helped the kindergarten students to create their own infograghics. The children noted that they needed their buddy to make the infograghic but they could help choose things for it.
