Collect data, create graphs, and analyze your findings in the Preschool Data Toolbox app! Choose one of six investigations with preschool-appropriate research questions, or create your own investigations and turn them into a data story. These data collection and analysis activities help children to engage in meaningful mathematics while developing computational thinking and problem-solving, communication, and inquiry skills.
Preschool Data Toolbox is part of the Early Math with Gracie & Friends® math-focused preschool curriculum supplement that includes both classroom and at-home resources. Findings from a pilot study suggest that the use of Preschool Data Toolbox and the corresponding hands-on activities has potential for helping preschoolers learn about data collection and analysis.
Early Math with Gracie & Friends® is not just apps! Our research shows the importance of engaging learners in hands-on, non-digital play in the classroom and at home. In fact, for every Gracie & Friends® app, we have created and researched around five hands-on activities! Find the entire curriculum in the digital Teacher’s Guide and explore activities for home in the Family Fun guide.
