Lesson 1 Creating a paper-based database

Curriculum > KS2 > Unit > Lesson

In this lesson, learners will create a paper version of a record card database. Using a card template, they will create a data set, with each learner creating eight to ten cards linked to a theme, e.g. animals. They will complete records for each of the animals in their database and then they will physically sort the cards to answer questions about the data.
