Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Flaws and Fallacies (cont.) AND Types of Data - Section 2: Types of Data – Looking at Big Bird

Attached you will see the responses that my students generated to describe Big Bird.  They obviously love picking on me because one student mixed in "Goofy like Mr. Hammel!" as a response :)

Although the number of responses was less than I anticipated, we still had enough to make the sorting activity a meaningful one.  Qualitative and Quantitative results both appeared.  To elicit more responses the next time, I might include a second or third character - or perhaps a movie star.
