Mrs. Lael's 2nd grade became Startown Research Company this past week during math learning time. Mrs. Lael, of course, is the CEO of this company. The company has 5 Cooperative Cohort Research Groups gathering data to share with other groups to make decisions about some items they may want to consider selling in their retail stores. The groups had to develop their own idea for research. Then they were to survey the entire class as a group to have the data needed to create a bar or picture graph. The children will then transfer the data collected on their hand create graph to a computer generated model of the same information. Students loved this real world learning opportunity!
