Question of the day: Part I

This is a great routine for students to do.  It helps them to collect data that makes sense.  It is about their lives and it gives them the opportunity to discuss their lives and to learn how to collect, organize and discuss data.  Here are some classroom examples.  Collecting data ties into the measurement and data standards of the ccss math.

This is a great routine to do in the morning because you can do it as one form of taking attendance.

*This could also be an activity that students do in a workstation.  You could discuss it in small guided math groups as well.  The focus should be on getting students to talk about the numbers using words like more than, less than, the same as.
