On the Same Day in March....Join other classrooms to explore weather around the world.
Create your own wiki page to share the weather events in your area.
Chart the temperature and precipitation periodically throughout the month of March and share with other classrooms.

1) Have a wikispaces account. Go to wikispaces.com to set up your account. Educational accounts are free.
2) Visit the page: http://samedayinmarch2014.wikispaces.com/
3) Click on "Join" in the upper right corner of the page. I will then receive notification of your request and can approve it OR you can send me an email at: cgrossrhode@gmail.comand I will email you an invitation to join.
4) Create your class wiki page on this wiki (see instructions at the bottom of the page) and share weather events and other things about your class, your school, your community.

Decide how you want to contribute to this project. You can one or all of the following:
a) Read Marilyn Singer's book "On the Same Day in March" to learn about how different the weather is in places around the world.
b) Chart the weather (temp and precipitation) on March 1 and 31. (If you don't have school on those days, record your data on the first day you are back in session.)
c) Chart the weather on the first day of Spring on Thursday, March 20.

In like a lion. Out like a lamb
We are all familiar with this saying describing March. Let's see if that actually happens in each of our communities. We will use the page In like a lion... (see link near the links to other pages) to track the temperature and weather for both days.
Create your own page in this wiki:
Shortly after joining the project you will want to create a page for your classroom. This will help classrooms to get to know each other before the "day in March." See the notes on the Formatting Guide to help you create your page.
