In this lesson, the students will create and conduct a survey. They will then collect and analyze the data to see if patterns arise in the responses of two or more comparison groups. There were two main lesson objectives: the students create and conduct a survey; and they organize data and use it to answer their investigation question. This lesson is described as a open inquiry: the students will decide what the question under investigation will be, the students will decide on a method to collect the relevant data, the students will analyze the data, and the students will use their data as evidence to answer the question under investigation.
