I asked my kid to sort his stationery things and arrange them in a box so that he can grab them when necessary. As soon as I told him he dumped everything on a table. It was totally a mess. He was struggling to arrange them. I called him and remained about the data handling concept in maths. By half an hour his stationary things were settled neatly in a box.

## What is Data Handling?

Really kids love to work with the data handling concept because it is all about sorting and collecting data. First, make clear what is data to kids. Data is a collection of information. It can be information about anything. Try to explain to kids with an example.

Next, what is data handling? In my perspective collection of information and sorting them according to their need. To make it clear to kids ask them to collect some information, let’s say to collect the information about their birthday gifts or toys or something and sort them according to the information collected. Who gave the gifts or what gifts they got like that. It will be a perfect example for them to understand the data handling concept.

## Why is Data Handling Important to kids?

Data Handling helps the kids to

• Grasp the information.
• To identify the patterns.
• To group or sort the information.
• Help to analyze the data.
• To display data in various forms.
• To determine the cause of problems.

## How to introduce the concept to kids

Childrens’ learning becomes more relevant and pleasant when they can see the interconnections and benefits of having their learning linked to skills they are already familiar with. Children start grouping the data in their everyday lives while playing, eating, and so on. So introducing the concept will be an easy task.

## Worksheets for Data Handling

I have created four worksheets based on the concept of pet animals, stationary, sorting the letters from the “Golden Words” and sorting fruits.

### Stationary

In this worksheet, the kid has to sort the number of different stationery items in the table given. It will be more interesting to kids because they use these items in their daily life.

### Pet animals

Most of them like to have pet animals at home. In this worksheet, the kid has to collect the number of friends who have the given animals as their pet animals.

### Sorting Fruits

I have listed some fruits pictures randomly. Kids have to count and write the number of different fruits in the table given.

### Golden Words

I have listed some golden words like thank you, please, welcome, sorry and excuse me. The kid has to read the question and answer them.

The worksheets are given in a colorful and kids-loving concept so that they won’t get bored and enjoy these worksheets.
