Gr 5 Weather

Mrs. Dunham’s class came in today to create an Excel spreadsheet to track the weather here in Portsmouth as well as in a vacation spot of their choosing. We also got their list of vacation spots and put a couple of

sites in folders for each place. The students will be able to compare and contrast the two areas as well as find mean, median, and mode of the variables. The biggest hit of the morning was showing them how to drag down on the dates to auto-fill!

  1. I loved your entry. Soon I will start teaching my 3rd graders how to make charts and graphs using excel. I absolutely love the “AH-HA!” moments. Just this morning using a program called the Graph Club, my first graders were predicting tomorrows weather.
