Using Data to Make Sense of the World

Project Description:

Using a monthly collection of data by each school in various locations around the world (temperature, daylight, precipitation), we will discuss topics such as: landforms, plants, animals, food, celebrations, jobs and transportation in relationship to the data and to questions and answers between schools.

Essential Questions Which Will Be Answered:

  1. What contributes to differences around the world and how?
  2. How does our judgment of differences contribute to misunderstanding?
  3. How can knowing the context of difference help us understand each other better?
  4. How does collecting and analyzing data help us understand this?

Class participation would include:

1. Collect monthly data in your area on temperature, precipitation, and daylight
2. Investigate one joint topic per month such as: landforms, animals, plants, food, celebration, transportation by posting 5 photos to represent the topic in your area.
3. Review all posted photos with your class and ask one question of each participating school.
4. Review answers given and explore learning in your classroom.
