Collaborative and real-time data projects engage students in collecting, analyzing, and sharing data from web-based databases; as well as allow communication with other students around the world. These kinds of projects are highly motivating to students because they bring classrooms together from across the globe in shared learning experiences.
For this weather project, we will use a collaborative wiki. This wiki is a place where elementary school teachers and students from around the world can share their weather information. From this wiki, the students will be able to learn about the different types of weather and compare weather patterns, temperatures, and precipitation.
