This morning, while I was trying to get our basement cleared out in preparation for some coming home renovation work, Ellie found a bag of farm animal manipulatives and asked to play the game that went with them. So I pulled out the teaching guide and we did a few of the simpler activities. She started “reading” the guide herself and came upon a worksheet for graphing favorite animals. At this point, she told me she NEEDED to know what a graph was and how to fill it in. Not wanting to squash a keenly interested mind, I promised her that we would poll our friends and family to find out their favorite animals so that we could make a graph.
In other words, we are crowd-sourcing our data collection! 🙂
Please vote, either by leaving a comment here on the blog or on Facebook:
Out of these five animals, which one is your favorite?
We’ll only accept one vote per person (so no good trying to stuff the ballot for “Team Sheep”!)
We’ll be sure to report back with our completed graph and data analysis. Thanks so much for your help!!
We vote COW!
I vote HORSE!
The cow has always been my favorite. Even at the zoo, when Brina the cow was still there, she was my favorite in the whole place. I could spend an afternoon just scratching her neck, and she’d spend the afternoon letting me. They have such soulful eyes. The horse is a close second. I’ve polled Jacob and Ellie; we have another cow favorite (Jacob) with a horse as second favorite, and Ellie says bunnies but they aren’t on your list so she says horse. So to sum up, 2 cows and 1 horse here.
Nana votes sheep! (Especially the lambs!:) )
My friend Carol Le votes for horse!
I vote sheep. My Daddy raised sheep in highschool for Future Farmers of America. He started with 11 and ended with 46. He sold his flock to go to college. Sheep for me!
