Pet Census Printables

Thursday, March 19, 2020

With everything else that is going on in the world right now, the census may not seem that important.  But with a lot of use stuck at home anyway, it's definitely worth it to take a few minutes to be counted. The data collected from the U.S. Census determines how many seats your state has in the House of Representatives, as well as aiding in the distribution to funds to communities. You can find more information on the website.

To help kids understand what a census is, I've made this cute little printable pack for you to do your own pet census at home!

For your census, you could count the animals in your neighborhood, in your family, or even on a TV show! I have included a form for Instagram stories, so your friends, family, or followers could also participate digitally.

For kids who are a bit too young to add, you can keep track of the totals using Legos or other small toys. Legos have the added advantage of being able to make a bar graph. For the older kids, there are websites where you can plug in the numbers to make a bar graph or even a pie chart. Sneaky math lesson! 

I've also included image files of all of the animal types, so you can use them to label your counts. You can also print one for every animal counted, or even print a town of animal pictures to be counted! 

If you want to print multiples on one page, save the file and then copy and paste the image into whatever editing software you have (paint or Word would work). Resize to the desired size by clicking the corner and dragging. Add as many as you need to the page, then print!
