# Healthy life survey

TLF ID L3158

Explore what kids do to have a healthy life. Choose questions to ask in a survey. For example, look at the percentages of kids that bring fruit as part of their school lunch. Examine a table of results. Sort the data and use it to answer questions. Display the results using a suitable type of graph such as a pie chart, bar graph or histogram. Identify conclusions supported by the evidence. Write a report based on the survey results. This learning object is a combination of three objects in the same series.
