Tool # 7

The students would enjoy routinely communicating with another class. Studying the geographic differences in climate and weather between the United States regions would be beneficial in fifth grade SS.
Obj: TSW - track temperature and rainfall for a period of time (30 days) recording on a graph or spreadsheet using google docs and compare results with students in the midwest region or northeast region of the U.S.
I would implement this in the first month of school while we are studying the United States regions. I think the students would be surprised to learn first hand how the regions of the United States differ in climate.The assignment would include geographical information as well as math skills.
