Survey Says

  1. Have students pick a topic on which to take a class survey.
  2. Have them interview classmates, record the results, and then compile the information into a graph.
  3. Have a sample survey and graph, as well as some survey ideas for students needing direction.
  4. Survey possibilities:
    • What is your favorite food?
    • How many TVs do you have?
    • Is your room neat or messy?
    • Do you like your name?
    • How many siblings do you have?
  5. These graphs and reports could easily be made into a Class Surveys Big Book.
