Investigating - Results Data
Did you know that woodlice curl themselves up for protection? What else could you find out about them?

Investigating - Results Data

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with investigating and looking at results data.

Children in a class have been investigating where woodlice like to live. They worked in groups of four. They used choice chambers to investigate. The choice chambers were in four sections:

A - Empty
B - Wet
C - Dark
D - Leaves

The children used 20 woodlice each time. They counted how many woodlice were in each section. They repeated their experiment. Another word for results is data. This quiz is all about the data they got.
