    Combine the two-- weather and graphing.

    Attach an outdoor thermometer to the outside of your classroom window.(Buy a thermometer with suction cups) Have students check temp in the AM AND PM. and record. Graph* the temps.

    Bring in newspaper. A newspaper that has the colorful weather page. Students can pick a favorite city and record low and high temp for 4-5 days. Students can then graph* temp info.

    * Students can do bar graphs or broken line graphs.
    * Another interesting activity is to make a bar graph and a broken line graph using the same info.
