What's the Temperature Like in YOUR Town?

We learned how to create line graphs with this project, understanding how to use the available technology to show change over time.
We completed some family tree research at home to discover the names of cities or towns in which we, our parents, and our grandparents were born. 
We each searched those birthplace locations online in the classroom to discover cities or towns sharing the same name as the one in which we and our family members were born. We each selected one birthplace location and a city or town sharing that location name.
We each tracked the temperature online for both locations over 5 days, and graphed the results of our data using Excel. We each learned how to create double-line graphs to show this change over time, independently following a written checklist. Review of finding the mean or average temperature and discussion about data result surprises were also included in this project.
