7. Design a collaborative project with another classroom.
Students will be able to analyze the relationship between pressure, density, and atmospheric pressure.
What tool(s) you plan to use:
google docs, today's meet, skype
It would be exciting for students to meet face to face on skype. They could discuss what it is like to live where they live and begin brainstorming on experiment ideas. Today's meet would be a good forum to connect classes during a lesson involving the above concepts. Google docs is the perfect tool for two classes to combine data and collaborate in small groups on a paper.
A brief description of the project:
Living in Houston my students and I are at sea level. I think it would be beneficial for students at sea level and student at a higher altitude to work together in designing their own experiments that analyze the relationship between pressure, density, and atmospheric pressure. My students could work with a class in Denver Colorado where the elevation is approximately 5,000 ft above see level.
