I gave this project sheet to my 5th graders during our weather unit. I wanted them to learn more about barometers, but I wanted to get to choose how they would learn more. They had three options, and they picked one of the three:
1) Write a paper about them
2) Make a chart showing readings for local area during the last week
3) Build a barometer!
My students had so much fun with this, and the projects turned out GREAT! I can't wait to do it again next year!
