Use this project with your students to track the weather of their favorite city. Students will choose a city around the world to track the daily weather for 10 consecutive days. They will be using Weather Underground and The Weather Channel to find this information. Provided in this product are step by step instructions for students as to how to navigate each website to find the information needed. Students will use two websites to find their information, and will eventually be putting their information into an excel sheet to produce data tables to show highs and lows for their recorded 10 days. Students will also go back and view weather from 10 years ago (2007) and make a similar graph. Students will be comparing and contrasting the information they found.
