This activity develops student understanding of the relationship of weather and climate. Students use interview techniques to explore perceptions about local climate change among long-time residents of their community. Students then compare the results of their interviews to long term local temperature and precipitation records.
Activity takes about 3-4 classroom periods with several weeks for students to work on project assignment. Students need access to computers.
