S Y1 Cats or Dogs? – PPDAC cycle new

This lesson uses the PPDAC cycle to explore an investigative question that will appeal to Year 1 ākonga. Kaiako can take the lesson further by following the ideas provided to make this lesson into a series of lessons.

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.
