Is The Groundhog a Good Predictor of the Weather?
The legend of the groundhog claims that if the groundhog sees its shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter. If the groundhog does not see its shadow, we will have an early spring.
Over the next six weeks, our class will be checking the weather on the Internet on a daily basis. Our weather information will be shared with 11 other classes from around the country, and we will try to determine the answer to this question.
This project allows us to explore two of our Science curriculum requirements; Earth Science (PA State Standard 3.5.3C) and Technological Devices (PA State Standard 3.7.3E). Math and Language Arts state standards will be integrated as well. This page will be updated throughout the project. Visit often to share this exciting experience with us!
