Squirrelly Behavior

4. Analyze Your Data

Summarizing and analyzing your data is as important as collecting the information during your behavior watch.

Graphs and charts

If you used the sample question, “What does a squirrel do in a day?” you can create an activity budget for squirrels by graphing your data, as Jennifer Mickelberg explained in her video about a behavior watch of golden lion tamarins.

Use the program below to graph your team’s worksheet data. The results will be displayed in a pie chart, a common way to graph an activity budget.

Enter your data in the chart below and then press the submit button.
