Friends from Springfield Convent Junior School
in South Africa sent us e-mail and told us what their favorite fruits are. Here are their messages.
Mrs. Weeg's computer students from Mrs. Yurek's class took the data and made graphs on the computer using Graph Club software. Each student placed the correct number of fruit in each column of a pictograph and bar graph. They labeled the axes and gave titles to their graphs. Each student left the lab with a printed copy of his or her graphs.
Below are two sample graphs made by Jeffrey using "Graph Club" and the letter that the students sent back to South Africa.
Our friends in South Africa replied:
Hello Jeffrey, Tiffany, Charles, Lakeena and Jerome (and Patti),
and follow the links to "Buildding the Global classroom"
You will find out a great deal about our South African animals at the May animals quiz.
Perhaps you'd like to join the project and make some quizzes about your indigenous animals as well?
Let us know how many you guessed right?
Perhaps you could graph the number of right and wrong guesses - there are 18 questions and 17 of them come from South Africa. The red fox is not indigenous to South Africa (the first question).
Here are the grade 3S's favourite fruits:
Tammy, Jade, Ashley - apple
Hope this helps you. Let us know if you dont know what these fruits look like!
