Database with historical and current demographic data and a written report, with appropriate illustrations
Do you have any children in your class who love archaeology or family history programmes? This unit allows children to do some historical research, looking at census data for their area. They then bring things up to date with a modern census-style database of their classmates. Finally, they compare and contrast the two sets of data and present some of their findings in a report.
