Description:

This is the home page of a global project developed to involve K-12 students in a study of global climate and temperature. Participation is free with registration. Students measure daily temperature, record the number of minutes of sunlight per day, and submit their data online. The web site contains tools for data comparison and storage. Students graph and analyze results, then share conclusions about causes of global temperature variation in a final report submitted to the website. Included are detailed project instructions, a teacher guide, reference material, and a student discussion forum.
