This is a project where students will need to find data with a common independent variable to show a correlation between to variables that obviously would not cause each other.
Covering Common Core Standards S.ID.6, S.ID.7, S.ID.8, and S.ID.9
-Line of best fit
-Correlation vs. Causation
Finding the data can be difficult and therefore there is a google site that will be a beginning place for most kids. Feel free to copy and paste the site and links to a format of your choosing.
The project is intended to be completed with Glogster, but could just as easily be done with poster board.
