Why use statistics?
Statistics can help public school teachers:
These "lesson plans were created to support curriculum in History and Social Studies..... to help students use the historical information of the Canada Year Book Historical Collection to bring the Canada of the past to life."
"An international web-based classroom activity for students aged 8 to 18."
"Census tracts are small, relatively stable geographic areas that usually have a population of 2,500 to 8,000." Use these census tracts to build a demographic profile of your school community.
"The Statistics Canada 2011 Census Teacher's Kit is provided free of charge, for use in elementary, intermediate and secondary schools across the country. Students play important roles as future respondents to the census and translators to parents whose language skills are not strong in either of Canada's official languages."
