Activities Bolstering Interpretation and Analysis of Population Trends

The United States Census Bureau has released “Statistics in Schools,” a free K–12 curriculum that features 20 lessons to help students understand why being counted in 2020 is important. The curriculum includes “Let’s Get the Count Right,” a 40-minute activity for K–2 that helps students learn how to count up to 100, make number comparisons, and understand the concept of populations; “Population Change over Time,” a 35-minute unit for grades 3 and 4 that helps students identify trends in data and make predictions based on data; “Diversity: Languages Spoken in the United States,” a 45-minute lesson for grades 5 and 6 to help students learn how to calculate percentages based on data and understand the concept of diversity; “Appointment,” a 35-minute study for grades 7 and 8 on how to use, analyze, and interpret data; and “Make Data Speak,” a 40-minute unit for grades 9–12 on how to collect and interpret data, and display the information in a visually creative way. Nearly every lesson concludes with objectives that help students connect the census count to distribution of resources within communities.
