Information Handling

Activity 1 – Information on the Way Home

Focus – I have explored and gathered examples of the different ways that information is collected and presented in my world and how it helps me.

Look out for information on the way home e.g.  posters, timetables, charts, etc. and notice the information they contain. Discuss together what information is being shared and who would find it useful.

 

Activity 2 – Around the Home

Focus – I have explored and gathered examples of the different ways that information is collected and presented in my world and how it helps me.

Discuss at least three different ways information is presented at home (e.g. on TV, in the newspaper, in leaflets).

 

 

Activity 3 – Recording Items

Focus – I can sort and organise objects based on my own and others’ criteria and can talk about what I have done.

Use the headings Plastic, Toy and Blue and record any items at home that fit under these headings. Can you ind and record any items that fit under two (or three) headings?

 

Activity 4 – Hopping

Focus – I have explored how we can sort and display information in different ways and can talk about what we have done.

Resources – Pencils and paper.

Find out how many times you can hop on each leg. First hop on your right leg, then on your left. Do each side three times and record the best result for each leg. Ask a other family member to do the same and talk bout the results.

 

Activity 5 – Toss a Coin – using Tally Marks

Focus – I have explored how we can sort and display information in different ways and can talk about what we have done.

Resources –  Coin, Pencils and paper.

Toss a coin 20 times and use tallies to record whether it lands heads or tails.

 

Activity 6 – Let’s get Organised.

Focus – I have explored how we can sort and display information in different ways and can talk about what we have done.

Resources –  pencils and paper.

Think about how things in your home are organised. Write down the different rooms that an object might sensibly be found in, for example, a chair might be in the kitchen or living room; a toothbrush in the bathroom; a coffee mug in the kitchen, bedroom, or living room. Can you think of a way to show this information?

 

Activity 7 – Media Search

Focus – I have devised and used simple questionnaires to collect information.

Resources –  pencils and paper.

Look at advertisements (on TV, internet, in newspapers or magazines, in leaflets around the home) and to try to find examples quoting numbers of people responding to survey questions, for example, ‘86 out of 139 women said Magic Shine is the best shampoo’.
