I have always wondered how infographics were created. I am happy to report that I participated in The First Infographic created by kids. When I saw what the types of questions were, I knew that this would be a fun way for my class to be part of a larger picture and see what they may have in common with other students. This infographic was created with data from over 1,000 K- 5th graders. Pretty impressive!
Interpreting data is something that students are always asked to do. As part of the Common Core Standards, we have worked on creating and interpreting data through surveys and graphs. Gathering the data for the infograph was interesting because it gave me insight on topics where they could choose their options. Oh, what confusion there was for the picture of the disk icon! What is that? What will happen if I don’t get it right? They definitely took the survey seriously. I told them to just have fun and share your best answers. As I walked around the room, I could see them deep in thought choosing their favorite characters, picking their hardest subject and answering what they wish they could learn about. Before handing it in, the students were asked to draw a picture of their favorite book. Once everyone had sketched, we gathered the survey and mailed them back to be included. A great real world lesson in gathering data!
Looking at the final product, I am happy to be a part of the first infographic made by kids by TeachHUB!
