This is a 6-7 lesson cycle where the teacher sets the context of a whole school event called the Kinect Olympics. Students will use desktop publishing and literacy to create a data collection sheet which will be filled out as students attempt to get the high score. The sheets will help students understand data types and they will build their database using the correct fields (Number, Date, Yes/No). They will all compete and record their scores on Kinect Sports. These scores with the rest of the schools and queries will help answer the hypothesis. Students will present their findings through a written report but will use the Kinect Spelling test to help their literacy on technical terms.
