Internet Weather Day

Internet Weather Day ~ February 23, 2010 on PhotoPeach

Mrs. Ranney's and Mrs. Yollis' classes joined a fabulous Internet Weather Project sponsored by Switlik Elementary School in New Jersey.

* * * * *

Participants were asked to check and record weather conditions at noon on
February 23, 2010.
We checked to see if it was hot or cold, cloudy or clear, calm or windy, and wet or dry. The slide show that you viewed above shows how we did this.

* * * * *

We will send our results to Switlik Elementary School in New Jersey. Then they will post the results they receive from all the participants.

You can see that the participants are from all over the United States and the World.
We can't wait to find out about the weather in each of these places!
