Interesting Facts about KSPS Family

The idea of statistics for children is quite challenging so a different strategy was needed to approach the concept.So this is what was done with grade five students.A survey paper was prepared including ten questions that asked about (favorite color, food, subject, pet, sport, hobby..etc).The survey papers were distributed among Mrs. Ghina Al Badawi,Mr. kamel Dallal,Ms.Lina Farroukh,and most KSPS teachers and grades 4, 5, and 6 students.Students explained the reason why they are doing this activity. They asked the teachers and their friends to help them understand the lesson by answering all questions.After that,all papers were studied and the results were classified.The results were quite interesting.Some results showed that most of KSPS family preferred the blue color,chose pizza as their favorite food,liked studying Math,favored swimming as a best hobby,and agreed that cats were their favorite pets.This activity made students grasp the idea of statistics easily.They enjoyed the involvement of teachers and other students.They asked to do another activity like that.
