Investigation of Shipwrecks

An internet investigation leads learners to discover whether or not weather and light house location are related to the locations of shipwrecks on The Great Lakes. They work in cooperative groups to plot the locations of light houses and shipwrecks to investigate the correlation. They graph the dates of the shipwrecks to identify patterns in the time of the year and therefore, weather conditions. The lesson is a good way to practice scientific investigation and research.
