Curious George was so happy that Mrs.Vacha’s kindergarten class wanted himto visit. But he was curious! He wanted to know exactly what they liked.So, the Man with the Yellow Hatwrote to Mrs.Vacha’s kindergartenand asked them to write and tellGeorge what they liked.
The Kindergarteners took a survey to findout their exact favorites.They each chose one topic they wanted toknow about and asked each friend in theclass.
They each prepared a survey sheet like thisto organize their data. They interviewed eachclassmate, carefully writing their friend’s initials tokeep track of each choice.
Each child used a checklist (like a map - ourtables are hexagons) to be sure to ask everyfriend.This way, they did not forget someone by mistake.They had a record and could ask absent students later.
