The Wichita Public School's Information Service and Technology Department has once again opened The Wild Weather Project. We would like to invite any classroom that is interested in collaboration or project-based learning to join us.
The purpose for The Wild Weather Project is to allow you the teacher to use this project to reinforce the concepts and standards that you have already taught or will be teaching in your classroom. The activities will help enrich your curriculum, while at the same time engage your students in the earning process. During this project, your classroom will observe the weather and collect this data for your region. You will then share your results with other classrooms from all over the world. Participating classrooms will share data and project by using this site or by video conference. This will allow everyone the chance to investigate the different climates in different regions. The results will then be available so you and your students can analyze this data. This project will also allow your students to work collaboratively and see those participating schools and also get the chance to reach outside their school walls. Who knows, maybe along the way you will get a chance to meet a real meteorologist through a video conference or our Live Events Channel.
