Featured in PASCO’s Elementary School Science Teacher Guide
Features 29 inquiry based labs designed for elementary students and coordinated with the standards for life, earth and physical sciences.
Use a weather sensor to measure temperature, dew point, humidity and atmospheric pressure over a period of time and determine any correlation between the data collected to observable weather conditions.
To understand this content, students:
- Design and build a weather station.
- Use a weather sensor to measure temperature, dew point, humidity and atmospheric pressure over a period of time.
- Analyze graphs of the weather data to see if there is a correlation to observable weather conditions.
