Research and data collection are important skills for school success. This lesson, comparing European countries to North Carolina, provides a way to practice these skills. There is list of websites, including Lonely Planet, that will pique learners' interest.
Being able to collect, analyze, and display data is a skill that begins in mathematics and extends to a variety of other subjects. Data and probability is first defined by three big questions and a wonderful set of examples that can be used to teach the concept. The activity is not in a traditional format, but rather provides educators with an entire set of activities and discussions that will help learners develop competency in data collection and analysis. 
Students research and organize information about allergies. In this data collection lesson, students watch a video about allergies. Students create a histogram using the information collected. Students complete the 'Displaying Survey Information as Graphs' worksheet. Students may then make a histogram from a data table. Students also draw conclusions using data from other histograms.
An inventive instructional activity shows learners how to collect, organize, and present mathematical data. They access websites which lead them through a variety of ways to engage in data collection. They get to design and create graphs, and present them to the class. Many cross-curricular instructional activity links related to this instructional activity are included in this spectacular plan.
Fourth graders collect data for a specific purpose. For this weather collection lesson, 4th graders observe local weather conditions for period of time and plan how to chart the data they collect. Students evaluate the data as well as their data collection plans once the time period ends.
Students explore different kinds of batteries.  For this middle school data collection lesson, students collect data on voltage of batteries.  Students compare the values of different batteries by analyzing the graphs and lists. 
Students collect data about the brightness of different light bulbs.  In this data collection about the brightness of different light bulbs instructional activity, students determine the relationship of various watt light bulbs.  Students plot their data using a scatter plot.  Students find a linear model to fit the data.
Young scholars read, construct, and interpret simple bar graph, identify, and describe various forms of data collection in their world, classify objects according to similar attributes, and use a digital camera for information collection and analysis.
First graders explore data collecting and graphing. For this data collecting and graping lesson, 1st graders watch a video about monster who sells pancakes. Students make a graph to record the most popular pancake. Students also play online games involving bar graphs.
Learners explore data collection and graphing. They will work in groups to determine the best tool to use for hand span measurement. They also collect hand span data and the whole class organizes data on a plot line graph.
Young mathematicians explore data collection and mathematical problem solving. They will work in cooperative groups to determine the height of a tree by measuring several predetermined distances on the ground. They will use the data collected to set up mathematical ratio problems and calculate the height of the tree.
Ninth graders examine the application of statistical sampling, data collection, analysis, and representation that exists in schooling and teenage lifestyles in Japan and the United States.
Students investigate data collection and analysis.  In this Algebra I lesson, students create a scatter plot and find the equation of best fit in a simulation of a leaking water pipe.
Third graders create a graph.  In this data collection and graphing lesson, 3rd graders create and conduct a survey.  Students use the data collected from their survey to create a graph.  Students present their data to the class.
Young scholars get the opportunity to investigate the concept of data collecting. They explore how to tally and read a bar graph. Vocabulary about data is also be included. At the end of the lesson, individual students collect data independently.
Sixth graders experiment with an atlatl and dart.  In this sixth grade data management mathematics lesson, 6th graders explore and determine the most suitable methods of displaying data collected from their experimentation with throwing the dart using the atlatl.  Students determine the mean, median, mode, range, and calculate the speed of the dart. 
Students trace the route of the historical event and measure the distance over which the people involved journeyed. A data sheet be constructed outlining the location of events, and the speed with which the journey occurred.
Fifth graders create data graphs using Microsoft Excel. In this data collection lesson plan, 5th graders create and conduct a survey, then use Excel to organize and graph their data.
Eighth graders maintain a data collection booklet of information that will be graphed. They explore how numbers are associated withtheir daily lives and a variety of data sets can be graphed. Students participate in mini-lessons and graph that information. This unit contains six lessons.
Students participate in an introductory scientific process lesson plan. In this scientific process lesson plan, students watch a teacher demonstration of how water bubbles when dropped on a penny. They use a data collection sheet as they count the number of drops that it takes to cover the penny. They perform the experiment three more times while working in small groups.
