Participants Needed for our Weather Around The World Project!

Collaborative and real-time data projects engage students in collecting, analyzing, and sharing data from web-based databases; as well as allow communication with other students around the world. These kinds of projects are highly motivating to students because they bring classrooms together from across the globe in shared learning experiences.

This project was developed by Kristen Paino (Technology Integrator at Avenues: The World School) and Sally Kent (Science Curriculum Specialist at Avenues: The World School). Please visit our digital project flyer for more information: Weather Around The World.
 

For this project, we created a collaborative wiki where middle school teachers and students (grades 5-8) from around the world can share their weather information (including images, audio and video). From this wiki, the students will be able to learn about the different types of weather and compare weather patterns, temperatures, and precipitation. 

This will be a year long project! We will begin in late September and end sometime in late May/early June. If you decide to join the project, you will need to have either yourself or your students upload the weekly weather forecast for your area every week. 

An example page titled "Project Example" was created on our wiki to help you get an idea of what your completed project page should include.
