This The Shape of Data lesson plan also includes:
Explore the difference between statistical and non-statistical questions. Fun follows as learners gather statistical data for the question, "How many times can the typical sixth grader catch a spool in a cup in one minute?" Data is posted in a line plot. Borrow rubber stoppers from the science department since spools are hard to come by!
