Students discover the meaning of census, discuss the 2000 census, and the importance of filling out the form and returning it to the census bureau. They review the census sheet from New Castle County in 1850, observing the headings of each column and discussing why this information was desired. They briefly discuss the information on the sheet paying close attention to the occupations, extended families, the place of birth, and whether the child attended school.
