Data Management Lesson - Census At School


When teaching data management I want to ensure my students are using data in a meaningful way and not just using the data sets from our textbook. I found The Census at School Project on the recommendation of several colleagues. 

This website enables teachers to create a class account, students measure themselves (height, foot size, arm span etc) and enter their data into the website. After the data is entered they can compare themselves with students locally or internationally. 

If you are at a school in Canada use this site: Census at School Canada

If you are at a school in one of the following countries: United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Korea, Japan, USA, Ireland, use this site: 
Census at School International
