Part A: Weather Journal- 10 days
The students record specific weather data over 10 days. The students develop a chart to record the following: barometric pressure, high and low temperatures of the day, precipitation, UV index, wind-chill and wind speed/direction.
At the completion of their data collection, they will choose 3 of the weather values they have been recording and graph them.
