Graphing with Google forms
Today was day 10 of school for my grade one students. I’ve got a great group of students this year who are as keen as can be! I’ve used Google docs and forms with teaching colleagues in the past for surveys, evaluations and questionnaires and really like how the results are summarized. We have started working on graphing in math and have graphed how many boys and girls we have in our class. Since I have a SMART Board in my classroom, I decided to create a Google form (see below) to answer the question, “How do you get to school?” My students loved making their selection at the SMART Board and we had a great discussion about the results using the handy pie chart that was generated for us. It was great to be able to show my students that information can be gathered on chart paper or by using a computer with the SMART Board. I’m sure excited for this year and more authentic learning to come!
