Weather and Climate: What's the Difference?

This Weather and Climate: What's the Difference? activity & project also includes:

Future weather forecasters collect daily temperatures over a period of time. Afterward, they compare their data with monthly averages, as researched on national weather websites, in order to grasp the difference between weather and climate. They create line graphs of their measurements and then make observations about national temperature trends. Although the lesson plan content is rather simple, it teaches an important standard concept for earth science courses. Consider using it as a springboard for a discussion about global warming.
