I am excited to show what we've been working on at Evans Homeschool Academy!
We all know that life is full of charts, graphs, cycles, and images. We also know that "reading" information can be one of the most mundane tasks we've ever had to fight through. But what if I told you that you can create some spectacular graphs, awesome data, and incorporate computer skills, mathematical terminology, equations, and conversions in one project?!
Would you be surprised to know the data is as easy as checking the weather?
But how was I to collect all of the data and how in the world would I store it? Then I thought about using excel to create spreadsheets. Then I figured, well, why not just teach the kids how to do it? So I did. And we came up with some pretty awesome graphs!
Check these out!
And here are some more!
We have thoroughly enjoyed using our weather as a way to learn about graphs, formulas, statistics, science, and math in general.
Don't be afraid to get out there and scour up your weather patterns. You'd be surprised at how great those free and natural resources can be!
Until next time,
