Living With the Weather

Mini-meteorologists visit the National Climate Data Center online to gather past weather information for the area that they live in. They consider how the weather patterns may have influenced the architecture of the area. Finally, they view other types of houses online and relate the structures to the local weather. Many of the resource links are no longer valid, but if you can invest a little time to find others, it would be worthwhile to bring this instructional activity up to its potential.

Lesson Planet helps me find fantastic ideas to spin off of and approach with my alternative education high school students. They can be difficult to motivate and sometimes when I'm just out of ideas- this site gives me just what I need to add to motivate them!
