Our Weather project is still going strong. We had a great time last term with all of those involved, and right now (August) we're getting started on our second round... although it's a little harder at the moment because the all the Northern Hemisphere seems to be on holidays! Do let us know when you come back!
In the meantime, we'd love people from ANYWHERE in the world to sign up on our google doc, either to start collecting and sharing weather data now or in October/November.
Here is a picture of us collecting weather data on our school roof!
From teachers Jenny, Debbie and Christine,
I worked with a small group of third grade students on this project. We were all excited because even though we can't Skype with the lead teachers' students because of the time zone differences (12 hours) we are colleratating with them using the lessons from Skype. It was the best project because it was authenic work. My students knew when the were sleeping in Australia Ms. Symington's students were looking at the weather data we had added to the google document and posts we had made on the Schoology website. An excellent project. My students are excited to rejoin the project this Autumn.Flag report
