Data Project
Weather Around the Country Data and Statistics Real-Life Project
CCSS: 6.SP.A.3

This project allows students to choose a city in the United States, look-up the temperature forecast, identify the location on a map and then find various measures of center and variability. Students also have the opportunity to compare their data to other cities and reflect on it. This project is a great way for students to apply their data and statistics skills to a real-life situation.
