This presentation highlights the role of questioning in statistics and data science with three examples from the newly revised American Statistical Association Pre-K12 Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education II. These examples present younger students the opportunity to explore answering statistical investigative questions using nontraditional data types and data science objections such as classification.
