Statistics about food

Asking classmates

At the end of this mission you will be able: to express and talk about the conclusions of an investigation about food likes.  

We will work the writing and speaking skills.

Along this mission we will create a survey in which you are going to ask about you classmate likes about food or maybe about their eating habits. At the end you will create a post explaining the results of your survey. 

Grammar point: Questions

Before creating your questionaire it will be very useful to remind or learn a bit more about how to create and ask good questions in English.

For that reason you have to work with some links in which you can read more information and learn and also you will be able to practice it before writing your own ones for the survey.

Now you are ready to create very original and perfectly correct questions for your survey.

The survey

Now you know the grammar you will need to start creating the survey and ask it to your mates. Remember when we are dealing with surveys it suppose a process: You have to create the questions, then you will send it to the people you want to answer it. You will get all the data, write down some conclusions and then publish it. 

Let's create your survey. We will offer you two posible options:

  • Create your survey in your notebook and asking your partners one by one.

Everything it is going to depend on you access to ICT. But all the survey will be exactly the same:

  • Ten questions in total.
  • Five questions about food like.
  • Five questions about eating habits. 

When you finish writing your ten questions let's design the form if you have chosen this option and then send it to your mates using your e-mail. Or if you have chosen then other option let's start asking your mates

When you finish it would be time to create the conclusions and to analyse the final results of the answers. Create a graph to represent all your data.

Your final product for this mission will be create the post to include all the information about the survey.

  • The link to the form or the ten questions.
  • The picture of the graph.
  • An explanatory text to explain the answers with at least five sentences. For example, The 50% of the classmates drink juice at breakfast time. 

It must be clear and atractive.  The 'Rubric for an explanatory text' will help you know how to do a great job. You can include the poster into you blog adding information about what your group work is. 

Don't forget to identify your post with the tag "Project A cook book".

If you want, your teacher can spread your post using the Twitter account of the classroom. For that you have to write down the tweet for the teacher. Remember: 

  • You can use 140 characters.
  • Include the link to your post. 
  • Use the hashtag of the project: #projectacookbook.

The 'Rubric to assess a tweet' will help you know how to do a great job. 

Before posting your text, ask your colleagues to check your work and make suggestions, corrections... You must do the same work with some of your mates' outcomes, too. Don't be afraid. Making mistakes is a good way to learn!

Learning Diary

<It's time to continue with your Learning Diary. Remember it helps you reflect on what you are learning and most important: what the best way for learning is.

Let's go back to the Google Drive Document you opened in the previous mission as a Learning Diary. Below your previous writing you will create a new section entitled: "At the sports center". You will reflect about your learning using the following questions:

  • What are the most difficult aspects?
  • What tool was the most difficult for you to work with?
  • What do you think is the most important aspect you have learned?
  • Are there any aspects you did not understand?

Remember it would be great if you shared these feelings and thoughts with your classmates. You will have 10 or 15 minutes to complete this part.
