    My son came up with a great idea! With my help, we're going to collected data as we play every board and card game that we own. Over the next 17 days, we will play one game per day and then fill in our data chart with information about our gaming preferences. What we like about the game. What we don't. What our favorites are.

    See blog post here.

    Then we will collect our data and make a pie chart (or two).

    Here's our Game Plan: (no pun intended!)

    1. Gather up all of our board and card games.

    2. Make a chart where we can collect data about what we like, what we don't like and how we rate the game.

    3. When our game challenge is done, we will enter our data into a free pie chart creator to display our results. The Pie Chart will look something like this at the end of our study.

    Besides learning how to collect data and formulate that into a study, we will be working through numbers, reading, strategizing and thinking skills as we play. We will be expanding our minds and having fun at the same time.

    Won't you join us in the game challenge? Pull out those dusty games and have fun. Record your results and share them here!
