Handling Data: African Animal Maths (Age 7-11)
This resource from ARKive, aimed at Key Stage Two, focuses on handling data, using some of the species that inhabit the African savannah as a context. It involves completing a table on the height and weight of animals and converting heights from metres into centimetres. In a second activity children are asked to interpret the data in the table and use it to construct bar charts representing the heights and lengths of different African species. They then go on to interpret the charts they have drawn to solve problems and answer questions. Finally children are asked to interpret a graph that has been drawn for them representing the weights of different African species, drawing on their prior knowledge of data handling and data interpretation in order to pose their own questions for interpreting the graph within the context of the problem. The resource includes teachers’ notes, an activity sheet and measurement data.
