Lost Property

The Statistics & Data Science Educator is an online repository of Statistics lessons written by teachers in Aotearoa, New Zealand.

This lesson plan, designed for Year 1 or 2 students, was written by Louise Tupai (Patumahoe School) and Anne Patel (CensusAtSchool).  Anne first saw the graphs of what was in the lost property in Margaret Slack’s classroom and was curious to know how the lesson ran and what the students got out of it.

Lost Property: Real-life data-detectives and perhaps less stuff in your lost property box!

Please let Anne know if you have a great lesson at the early curriculum levels you want to share with other teachers.
