Back in the early/ mid 90's there was a big trend in collecting Marvel character cards. Similar to the sports cards these cards contained lots of great stats and facts about the various Marvel characters. To help engage my pupil I have been using the cards as records and data files and the children went around to all the different cards and created bar charts based on a field they found particularly interesting, some looked at strength and others agility and there were many more graphs. With the popularity of the comic creations there has never been a better time to engage and excite your children with data and graphs! Beat the typical 'What shoes size are you?' guff.
