About This Lesson

Access Free Lesson Plan Here: Precipitation Data: What Does It Show?

In this lesson, students use New Jersey precipitation data to create graphs and discuss climate change.

Step 1 - Inquire: Students discuss initial observations about a New Jersey precipitation data chart showing monthly and annual averages.

Step 2 - Investigate: Students explain the relationship of precipitation over time by graphing, finding the line of best fit, and finding the equation of the line.

Step 3 - Inspire: Students choose an independent activity, complete a short reading, and then apply their learning to a discussion about the relationship between precipitation and climate change.

Learning Outcomes

  • Students will be able to explain parameters and intervals used in displaying and graphing data.
  • Students will be able to explore conclusions on the relationship between precipitation and time.
  • Students will be able to find a line of best fit and the equation of that line.
  • Students will be able to explain if their graph is linear or exponential.

This lesson is aligned to New Jersey standards.
