Pine Bush Elementary 2010 Census

After learning about the United States Census, students in grades K-2 completed the PBE Primary Census, with teacher assistance. Students in grades 3-5 completed the PBE Intermediate Census on their own in their classroom.

They created grade level and question-specific tally sheets to collect the data from the completed forms. Once the data was collected from each grade, they used an online graphing program called, Create-a-Graph, to design bar graphs and pie charts. The students realized that they would be unable to put all the information into a graph, so they choose the top five from the author/illustrator/series categories and presented them in the visual formats of their choosing.

Click on the following student-created graphs to see the grade level results for favorite author.
