PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

BEFORE YOU BUY: This file is part of a larger unit. Save yourself money by purchasing the Super Science Set for Weather and Climate instead of buying each file separately. Copy and paste this web address to purchase the entire set. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Super-Science-Set-Weather-and-Climate

Purchased alone, you get:
an Excel workbook that enables students to track the weather for 5 different locations as a whole class or individually. As students enter data such as precipitation, barometric pressure, relative humidity, wind speed, and temperature the workbook dynamically creates comparison graphs.

Product Questions & Answers

On  April 12, 2012middleschoolscience (TpT Seller) asked:
I am interested in the "Weather Tracking in Excel" and wanted to use it for my science class with laptops. My question is, are there options to view the data differently? For example, can I opt to look at the cities with five different line graphs instead of the bar graphs that you have as a sample?

Also, do you usually provide students with the city data or have them find it on the internet?

Thanks!

Hi! You can definitely change the view of the graph. All you have to do is right click on the graph and go to chart options. Choose the style you want from there. In fact, line graphs are what I typically use with my students. I can't even remember why I left it as the default bar graph when I posted this. I will probably go back and change that. Thanks for asking. As for recording the data, I have done it both ways. It just depends on the group of students. If you want to grade their results, it is easier if everyone is recording data from the same cities at the same time. Lately, I've been using Google Earth with the Weather Layer turned on. I project it on the SmartBoard and students gather their data all at the same time. It takes about 10 min. to do it this way every day. This makes it easier to go back and double check their data as well. Hope this helps.
