1 Grade Level: 3 Time: Three 45 min class periods By: Keith Barton (Bedford County Public Schools) In this lesson, the students will create and conduct a survey. They will then collect and analyze the data to see if patterns arise in the responses of two or more comparison groups. There were two main lesson objectives: the students create and conduct a survey; and they organize data and use it to answer their investigation question. This lesson is described as a open inquiry: the students will decide what the question under investigation will be, the students will decide on a method to collect the relevant data, the students will analyze the data, and the students will use their data as evidence to answer the question under investigation. This lesson was developed through the Introduction to Inquiry: A Professional Development Model to Reform Teacher Practices project directed by Science by Inquiry at Sweet Briar College and funded by the Virginia Department of Education Math Science Partnership Grant (MSP) Page 1

2 Context In my classroom, this lesson comes at the end of our social studies unit on the ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome. The last part of that unit was on human characteristics, or jobs, and the different roles that were played by men and women. Throughout the year, we have spent a great deal of time comparing and contrasting different people, places, and things. While we have also already covered graphing, our third grade unit is using these two weeks to review turning tally marks into charts & graphs. This is an open inquiry lesson because the students must come up with their own question for investigation (though they will be provided a framework), their own method for investigating that question, and they must answer their question based on the data they collect. Though the students will never actually be told to do so, the lesson plan guides them towards creating a survey. One of the focuses of this plan was math, and the big ideas were surveys and analyzing data. While the SOLs do require the students to conduct surveys, it s not a part of the SOL that is tested. Because the tests are assessing more and more skills by application, we wanted our students to create a survey of their own. They had to find a way to conduct that survey and then look at the data to see what patterns emerged. All of these ideas are a part of the math SOL After having done two inquiry lessons prior to this one, the other third grade teachers on my team were beginning to take notice of the changes in my students. They wanted to collaborate on the planning process of this lesson so they could see what inquiry was about. We also decided to collaborate to include as many review skills as possible. Though this plan only includes the math and science portions, we also had reading, social studies, and spelling components that resulted from our team planning. ~ Keith Barton Page 2

3 Objectives Know o Surveys are an effective and valid way of gathering data. o Data can be represented in several different forms. o When writing, you must consider your audience. Understand o Questioning Skills o Data analysis and representation Do o Create and conduct a survey o Collect and analyze data o Represent data in a graph or table format o Communicate investigation question and data Page 3

4 Standards Virginia Standards Math 3.17 The student will a) collect and organize data, using observations, measurements, surveys, or experiments; b) construct a line plot, a picture graph, or a bar graph to represent the data; and c) read and interpret the data represented in line plots, bar graphs, and picture graphs and write a sentence analyzing the data. Science 3.1 The student will plan and conduct investigations in which a) predictions and observations are made; b) objects with similar characteristics are classified into at least two sets and two subsets; c) questions are developed to formulate hypotheses; g) data are gathered, charted, and graphed (line plot, picture graph, and bar graph); j) inferences are made and conclusions are drawn. English 3.1 The student will use effective communication skills in group activities. a) Listen attentively by making eye contact, facing the speaker, asking questions, and summarizing what is said. b) Ask and respond to questions from teachers and other group members. c) Explain what has been learned.

5 Preparation What You Need For the class (or teacher): Document Camera or SmartBoard with blank handouts (below) Blank copy of Double Bubble Thinking Map Blank copy of teacher- created survey (Appendix B) For each group: A Double Bubble thinking map (Hyerle, 2007) is a way to compare and contrast two ideas. It s similar to a Venn Diagram. Materials for students to create a survey (paper, pencils, computer) Materials for students to record survey results (journals, computer) For each student: Double Bubble thinking map Teacher- created survey (Appendix B) Question Framework (Appendix C) Investigation Write- up (Appendix D) Page 5

9 don t need to go through all of the surveys, go through at least 10 and see if there is any information that stands out. Discuss the findings with the class. 10. Finally tell the class that they are going to be working within their reading groups (or like- ability groups as determined from the pre- assessment) to create a question and a way to answer that question. To start out, however, each student will work on his/her own. Hand out a Question Framework paper to each student (see Appendix C), and allow time to fill out the paper as individuals. At the end of the period collect the papers. Unlike most of the higher level questions we write during our literature circle time, these were simple yes/no, which one, rank these types of questions. Because these types of questions are so easy to write and answer, the class was all over it! ~Keith Barton Before Day Two: Check the Question Framework papers to assess the students thoughts on how many questions they will need to ask. Also, make notes on the papers about the people groups the students have chosen. Some students may have picked unrealistic groups, numbers of questions, or numbers of people to take the survey. This allowed me to see if they had a good idea of what people groups would be available to them. It also gave me an idea of which students work would need to be reined in some people picked actual people groups that were not reachable. Some wanted to compare Greeks to Romans or Europeans to Africans. I think this was because those particular students were still thinking about history and not about people in general. I found that the students took care of the redirection here. Each student shared his/her completed question stem with their reading group, and groups decided on which stem to use to make their survey. ~Keith Barton Page 9

10 Day Two: The Investigation Introduce the Investigation: 1. Begin by returning the students papers from yesterday. Allow time for each student to read over teacher s comments and to share their ideas with the other members of their group. 2. Afterwards, allow time for each group to decide which question they will choose to investigate. 3. While the groups are working, the teacher should circulate to see if the students are keeping in mind the notes that were written on their papers and to monitor progress on writing the survey. 4. As an exit ticket for the day, each student should write his or her own hypothesis to the investigation question, even if their opinions differ from others in the group. Day two could not have gone more perfectly, and the part of the plan that I thought would cause the most difficulty having each of the four groups decide on one question to answer- took no time at all. In the time that I spent walking around the classroom, very few students needed guidance. In fact, the surveys were written so quickly, that we even had enough time to go to the computer lab and type them. This was not in the original plan, but because the technology teacher had been showing the students how to use Microsoft Publisher to make things look more attractive, it was an opportunity I wasn t going to pass up! ~Keith Barton Over the next Two Days Provide students with time to distribute the surveys, have people complete them, and return the survey results to the students. Provide time for the students to start looking at the answers, and to come up with a plan for how they will organize, analyze, and show the results. Page 10

11 Day Three Data Analysis Once all data is collected, allow groups time to organize, discuss, and prepare their data for presenting to the class. Individually, have students fill out the Investigation Write- up sheet (Appendix D) as they are discussing with their group. Have the student groups present their question, data, and an answer to their investigation question to the class. Collect the Investigation Write- Up sheets to assess students summatively. For the most part, all the groups decided on a tally chart to show their data. The top reading group, however, chose to write paragraphs to answer their question, and their data was referenced in the paragraphs. I believe they got the idea from Scholastic News Magazine. We read an issue every week, and in every week, there is an article called Debate It. In the article, a question is asked and students interviews from opposing sides are printed in paragraph form. ~Keith Barton Page 11

13 Formative Assessments: The Question Framework turned in at the end of Day 1 is used to assess students formatively. Teacher needs to make comments on these sheets and return them to the students at the beginning of Day 2. Consider whether the groups are realistic, whether the number of surveys needed will be practical, and if the proposed questions will address the question for investigation. Summative Assessments: The surveys themselves can be used to assess how students, as a group, are able to write good survey questions. The group presentation on their data analysis is used to assess how students are able to creatively, and accurately present data. The group s response to the investigation question will show how students make the connections between their data and the answer to the investigation question. Consider using the individually written Investigation Write- Up to grade students individually and/or to formatively assess students writing abilities. Then there was the survey itself. The surveys did not have to be of any predetermined length, and when some of the students asked how long they had to be, I simply said, That s up to you, but it sure would be nice if each person in the group came up with at least one question. All of the groups had surveys of at least 5 questions. Reading the questions helped determine if the students were able to stay on topic. Though it was not in the plan, these questions were kept, put on a master list, and the students had to group the questions by topic to recreate the survey. ~Keith Barton The final pieces of assessment were the groups charts and the individual student s investigation writeup. The former showed how well the students could actually interpret their data, and the latter showed if the students could identify elements of the scientific method within this activity. ~Keith Barton Page 13
