Predicting Weather Unit and Project

Students were informed that our first science project for this year would combine Language Arts, Computers and Science.  We demonstrated some of the ways we would be using our laptops and the LCD projector in the classroom to look up information and take notes.  They were introduced to blogs and shown what they would be expected to do at the end of the unit.  The students, collectively, answered the question:  What does the word weather make you think of?  Through this brainstorming, the students created the title of our weather blogs.
