Authentic Project Idea – What Impacts Weather

MegHawaii

The picture at the top of this post and the picture at the bottom of this post were taken on the same day.  And they were both taken on the same island in Hawaii!

How is that possible?  Snow in the tropics?  On the same day the young lady went from short sleeves to a winter coat?  (Hint – she was high up on a mountain at an observatory in the second picture.)

So, what impacts weather?  How many places can you think of where someone could wear a summer outfit and a winter outfit during the same day?  Take the authentic learning experience from here…it may end up being a long authentic project about what impacts the weather or a short authentic research experience about what the young lady is standing inside of in the top picture. Or maybe even a huge authentic project about the Hawaiian Islands.  With authentic learning you never know where you will end up!  Aloha!
