Posing summary investigative questions

In this activity students are reintroduced to the 2009 CensusAtSchool survey by way of data cards. (This could be adapted to meet any of the previous CensusAtSchool surveys.) Students will be involved in posing investigative questions, making displays using their data cards and giving descriptions of their display. This is followed up with a reflection on the process leading to identifying what are key aspects of a good investigative question.
