It will be important to make sure that students have exposure to as many weather forecasts as possible. This means that you may want to supplement what is included in the web quest with more local weather forecasts or even others from around the country or world.
It is also important that as educational facilitators, we make sure we get our facts right when students have questions. The web sites below can help.
The following standards and GLE's are addressed in this web quest:
Processes (such as plate movement, water cycle, air flow) and interactions of earth’s biosphere, atmosphere, lithosphere and hydrosphere
a. Observe, measure, record weather data throughout the year (i.e., cloud cover, temperature, precipitation, wind speed) by using thermometers, rain gauges, wind socks
b. Compare temperatures in different locations (e.g., inside, outside, in the sun, in the shade)
c. Compare weather data observed at different times throughout the year (e.g., hot vs. cold, cloudy vs. clear, types of precipitation, windy vs. calm)
d. Identify patterns indicating relationships between observed weather data and weather phenomena (e.g., temperature and types of precipitation, clouds and amounts of precipitation)
