As winter weather continues we explore the Meteorology studies unit. Students have been gathering rain, wind and temperature records and sending the data in to be included in Camp Internet's GIS Weather mapping project. In the course of doing the weather information gathering students learn to record, organize and create a spreadsheet of the data they gather. They learn by doing real life Meteorology.
