Hello! My name is Kristen Paino and I am a Technology Integrator at Avenues: The World School of NYC. I am looking for middle school teachers/classes to join our Weather Around The World Project for the 2012-2013 school year.
Please visit our digital project flyer for more information and to sign up: Weather Around The World.
For this project, we created a collaborative wiki where middle school teachers and students (grades 5-8) from around the world can share their weather information (including images, audio and video). From this wiki, the students will be able to learn about the different types of weather and compare weather patterns, temperatures, and precipitation.
This will be a year long project! We will begin in late September and end sometime in late May/early June. If you decide to join the project, you will need to have either yourself or your students upload the weekly weather forecast for your area every week.
An example page titled "Project Example" was created on our wiki to help you get an idea of what your completed project page should include.
I hope you join our project!!!
