S Y1 Carry Your School Bag – PPDAC cycle new

This lesson explores an everyday context using the PPDAC cycle to show ākonga that statistical ideas are everywhere and we can collect data to answer questions that are interesting to us.  

This activity explores the following key ideas: 

  • People and the environment are not data, but data can tell us things about people, their lives, and their environment. 
  • At this age, each step in the cycle will need to be led and supported by the teacher. 
  • Data visualisations are representations of all available values of one or more variables that reveal relationships or tell a story.
