Noel and I will be joining another project that is already in the works. It is called The Global Sun Temperature Project. The purpose is to join students from around the world to determine what affect geographic location has on the daily temperature and hours of daily sunlight.
We will implement this project during our Earth and Space unit. Students will record the daily temperature, sunrise, and sunset times for Houston, along with out latitude and longitude. This info will be entered on the project wiki page that is already formed. They will then look at the information given by other students from around the world and state any relationships they have formed about location and number of sunlight hours and daily average temperatures.
