Overview:


This podcast features a lesson in which students work in pairs to create a short video of the next day's local weather forecast. Each team's forecast will air the following day, followed by actual weather readings of instruments such as the barometer and digital hygrometer (provided by AMSTI / GLOBE). The forecast and instrument readings will be recorded and compared over a period of weeks on a weather data table.
