In this lesson, students will gather data from around the world to compare various weather trends to the weather in North Carolina. Students will be responsible for collecting data, compiling it into digital graphs, communicating with other students around the world to learn more information about the climate in their area, and sharing their information via a multimedia presentation. Students will be asked to reveal any patterns and trends that they notice and evaluate why these trends exist.
