HISD fifth-graders reveal top ten list of most wanted holiday gifts

Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - A group of Houston ISD fifth graders revealed their list of the Top 10 most wanted holiday gifts.

HISD's Longfellow Elementary students sought to find the top gifts for children to help parents tackle their holiday shopping. Last month, the students divided into teams to survey their classmates about the most desirable toys for this holiday season.

The students then recorded the data and used their data analysis and math skills to tally the results. They included many gifts under $20 to ease the financial burden for parents.

"My favorite part about the toy survey was working in teams," said fifth-grader Dasani Godfrey.  "We got together and came up with the different toys we thought students would want for the holidays."

"I got to survey the first grade students," said fifth-grader Kayla Hughes.  "I really liked getting to talk with them and seeing what they liked about the different toys."

Here are the Top 10 lists:

Top 10 Toys for Girls:
10. Disney Dolls
