Melville Intermediate - Weather Reports for Techie Kids

On Friday we were looking at the Techie Kids page from the USA and were reading about their snow and their weather conditions.  We had two groups from Room Five working on videos to help the Techie Kids to understand what the weather is like here in Hamilton.    Manish, Owen and Nathan H created this Snow Report for The Techie Kids! Its got one important piece of information in it, we have had snow in Hamilton twice, twice in the last one hundred years, which included a ten second snow flurry last year.  Also we asked our class how many students had seen snow and the answer was about half (13 out of about 26).  This video below is the Boys creation:

We also had a group of Elizabeth, Bianca and Jamie researching the weather forecast for the week ahead. One of the things that we needed to do for the Techie Kids was to convert our temperatures from centigrade into farhenheit which the girls did by using an online converter.  If you have a look at the video you will see its a fairly similar forecase for the next week:

    nice work guys this could lead to the future. check out my class blog and come write a comment on our page.

  2. Dear Mr. Webb and Room 5,

    I can't believe you have only had it snow twice in the last one hundred years! Here in Michigan it snows almost every year and we get a lot of it. I liked your videos and it looks really sunny there. I can't wait till it gets sunny in Michigan because its really cold right now.

    Mrs. Moore is planning on contacting you sometime soon. If we got to skype it would be really fun. I hope we can skype really soon.
