I had my students complete this project after studying the differences between weather and climate. The student project directions and rubrics are pretty elf-explanatory. They basically pick a city (I’ve included the current weather and climate data for the following seven cities:
-New York, NY
-Las Vegas, NV
You may choose the students to research the information on their own if you have technology available, if not, these pages are available to you. The only thing you will have to find/update yourself are the ‘current’ weather calendars for each state, or you can have students go onto weather.com to find them (the site is very user-friendly).
Perfect for TEK 5.8A but can be adjusted for other grades/states.
