Statistics in Schools: History Activities
https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/sis/activities/history.html

From the U.S. Census Bureau’s Statistics in Schools (SIS) program comes this collection of classroom history and social studies activities intended to “supplement the standard curriculum while providing useful learning tools related to real life data.” This collection features well-developed activity plans for K-12 students, each focused on a specific topic. Activities are broadly grouped into grade-level appropriate subjects: elementary grades (e.g. “Jamestown – Factors Affecting Population Change, 1630-1700”), middle school (e.g. “Where Should I Live? Using U.S. Census Bureau Data to Make Decisions”), and high school (e.g. “19th Century Immigration – Causes & Effects”). The webpage for each activity gives a description, states the time and materials required, and provides a list of learning objectives. Some activities also take advantage of the Census Bureau’s interactive digital tools, such as QuickFacts. Each lesson includes attractively designed and downloadable PDFs of teacher and student versions of the activity. This will be added to Education Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™. Copyright © 2017 Internet Scout Research Group – http://scout.wisc.edu
