Objective: The student will compare different weather patterns in different parts of the country.
Time Frame: This would be a month long study. It would be implemented in late fall.
Technology Tools: Skype (to allow each class to collect data from another part of the country); Google Docs (students will create a graph on MS Word, which they will upload to Google Docs)
Plan: Students will use Skype to connect with another classroom and collect data from another part of the country throughout the course of a month. Each day students will record their data on a graph. At the end of the study, students will use the information to determine what kind of weather each place had the most/least of, etc. Graphs will then be uploaded to Google Docs.
