Student tally the students' favourite dinosaurs from the Isle of Wight, and enter their results into a bar graph and pie chart, before answering questions on key aspects of the results.
This is a curriculum-based mathematics resource that enables students to practise their tally skills, understanding frequency and presenting their collated statistical data through the use of graphs, including pictograms, bar graphs and pie charts. The skills required to undertake the task are core to curriculum areas within mathematics.
This resource can be used on-site at the end of the visit or could also be used when back in the classroom, as a post-visit activity. This is a peripheral task that links to the key areas of interest within the Dinosaur Isle museum, most notably the dinosaur types found on the Isle of Wight.
Key Skills Practised

During the Visit
Completion of the resource linked to this document: Dino Data Challenge!
Why not complete this resource on a day trip?
The Isle of Wight can be reached in as little as 12 minutes! If you're located close to the south coast then a day trip is easily achievable...
This resource could be completed as part of the following day trip:
Dino Delights! from £8.79pp
The Isle of Wight is Europe's Dinosaur & Fossil capital! Dino Delights is an inspiring day trip to a fascinating dinosaur museum.
Students will be able to demonstrate their ability to understand the process of obtaining information then transforming it into statistical data before presenting it in an appropriate graph or chart. They will show understanding of potential reasons for their results. They will have practised tallying skills, collation and presentation skills, and will demonstrate accuracy in drawing conclusions from their results.
