survey and graph

Have a question on the board such as "What is your favorite kind of ice cream.... chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry?" Have the students survey 10 (or whatever # you feel comfortable with) students, then make a graph showing their results. Make sure to provide graph paper. (The 1" kind is great in 1st grade)
You can adjust this to meet your needs. Then have 3 questions they must answer on the back of their graph. These could vary depending on the grade level. For first grade I would ask:

Which was the favorite ice cream?
How many more liked ______ than _________?
How many children liked ______ and ________?

You can do this several times with a different question each time.
My kids loved this activity.....
