Combine math and science by having your middle schoolers calculate standard deviations using Earth's annual average temperatures from 1970 to 2004. In the process, learners get to examine trends as well. If computers are available, they can look at the NASA climate index near your home to view a graph of the average annual temperatures. Follow-up discussion questions are provided.
