I have this PowerPoint set up on the student's computers. They work in teams of 2 and complete the powerpoint with research of a state that was assigned to them.
I usually use this as an extension of their State Reports. The students research the weather in the state they did their reports over. Once everyone has completed their powerpoints I email them to myself and have a presentation day. The students dress up as weathermen/women and present the weather to the class. It is so fun!
