Everyone Please Take This Very Wholesome Survey So Mrs. Porter’s Second-Grade Class Can Learn About Graphs

Pizza or soup?

1. A second-grade class in Indiana is learning about graphs, and they need you to help by filling out their (very cute and wholesome) survey.

2. It’s kind of amazing.

3. Some of the questions are a real doozy.

4. You can only pick one!!!!

5. The survey comes from Kara Porter’s second-grade class at North Vermillion Elementary School in Cayuga, Indiana.

Porter told BuzzFeed News every student contributed one question, and the school secretary posted the survey on Facebook Tuesday morning so they could gather responses.

“We were just thinking local — people that we know, people that our parents know,” Porter said.

Instead, the survey went ridiculously viral, with people taking it in Finland, Tasmania, South Africa, and beyond.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the survey has more than 230,000 responses.

6. People are really, really loving it.

16. Porter said her class is “thrilled” that their survey is getting so many responses.

In class today, Porter left the link up on the Smart Board so the class could watch how many people were taking the survey in real time.

“You can just watch that number tick, tick, tick, just counting up, and they’ll squeal every time we hit a big milestone,” she said. “They’ve been joking that we broke the internet. Every time I go to refresh and it won’t work, they’re like, ‘Ah, we broke the internet again!’”

Porter plans to close the survey on Friday and will be sharing some quick stats on the school’s Facebook — but due to the thousands of responses, sorting through all the data is going to take a bit longer than expected.

“We are planning to graph all of this, but now I don’t know how!” she said.

  1. So, until we have Mrs. Porter's class data...what kind of food do you like?
    1. Pizza
    2. Soup
  1. And what kind of animal do you like?
    1. Zebra
    2. Giraffe
