When we read the news, we have to think about lots of small pieces of information that help us figure out what's going on. Sometimes this information comes in the form of numbers and statistics.
For this week's competition, we are giving you a mystery statistic:
"42% of XXX are XXX."
Your job is to say what you think it represents - and then how that makes you feel. It could be about any topic in the news, so think carefully before you choose. We will reveal what the real statistic is when we announce the winners.
- Make your entry about something in the news that interests YOU
- Try to think of a few options before picking the best one (have a look around the Hub for topic ideas if you need help)
- You could say: "I think this statistic is "42% of (?) are (?)" . This makes me feel... because... ."
