a) Content Objective: Students will be able to find the average amount of growth after a longitudinal study of height over 4 years. SWBAT measure with a ruler in CM and INCHES. SWBAT used googledocs to archive their information.
b) When you plan to implement: At the beginning of their 5th grade year (recurring 4 times a year for 4 years)
c) What tool(s) do you plan to use: Google docs, ruler, lined graph paper, excel
d) A brief description of the project: Since teenage years seems to be one of the critical times of growth in a students lives. It would be very interesting to archive student's heights over four years and let it be a project in their 8th grade year. I could see excel (or the equivalent in googledocs) be used so that data can be used around the country.
