Book Week - Why is the Cover Important?


This week is book week. Today we were put into groups and rotated to the different stations. We would answer questions or give our opinion. Once we finished going to all of the stations I chose a question to do a statistical analysis on. The question was: Why is the cover important?. I used a pie graph to show reasons why a cover is important. I also used a bar graph to show how much people in our class voted for how important the cover is.

For reading we were learning about the Battle of the Somme that occurred on July 1st 1916. We first read a text explaining what happened during the war and a few facts about it. We read the text and answered the questions. We answered the questions about the war and got to write our own opinion about what we thought about the war. We have learnt that war shrines were like memorials made to remember the fallen soldiers.
