Abstract

Groups of students graph data reflecting temperature anomalies over a short period in the recorded climate history of the world or in part of the Great Lakes region. Using only their own data, they predict how their actual temperature anomaly trend might continue; then student groups assemble and observe the trend of the 130-year data set. In addition to the science of the lesson, important conclusions can be drawn about how the construction of a graph scale can influence how data are interpreted.
