Project 3: Project Groundhog
The grade three classes of Goulds Elementary will be able to communicate daily temperatures, weather conditions, wind direction and the UV index information from our area to other areas of our province. We will collect the data throughout the six week period and then proceed to organize, chart, graph, and analyze the responses. Throughout the project students will have the opportunity to correspond with our partners throughout the province and post the results via the Internet and creation of a homepage.
There are many curriculum connections within this particular project. The goals of the prescribed science program are directly linked to this project as well as other areas of the grade three curriculum.
Through the STELLAR Schools Internet connection, students will be able to collect information pertinent to this project and to communicate to other schools within our province. Students will learn how to publish data using STEM -NET and to gain word processing skills.
