This resource focusses on producing a tally chart to record and analyse data about favourite colours. This activity introduces tally charts to the pupils as a really quick and easy way of recording data. They will learn how to produce one and how it can be used to find out the favourite and least favourite colours in the class. In this activity learners will produce a tally chart of the favourite colours in a class. They will split into groups and go round the other learners in the class, recording their favourite colours in their chart. They will then add up the totals and discuss their results. This activity could be used as a main activity to develop knowledge and understanding of methods of recording and displaying data, or as part of a wider scheme of learning focussing on statistics. It could also be used as a starting point for learning based around the use of colour in design and technology. It is also easily adaptable to allow children to create their own tally charts, coming up with their own questions.
