Use graph paper to prepare a map of the school grounds
showing the arrangement of buildings, lawns, shrubs, trees,
etc. Use thermometers to measure the temperatures of the
air, water, and soil in different locations around the
grounds. These measurements can be placed in the appropriate
squares on the map.

Remember, air temperatures are more accurate if the ther-
mometer is allowed to swing freely in the air from the end of
a string. Ground temperatures can be taken by carefully
inserting the bulb end of the thermometer in the soft earth.
Surface temperatures are more accurate if the bulb is shaded
from sunlight.

Compare the temperatures. If you added the temperatures and
divided by the number of places where you measured the
temperatures, would the result be an average temperature?

Temperatures can also be compared for different seasons of
the year. If this project were done at or close to the time
of the solstices and equinoxes, you could compare the seasons
and decide what adjectives would apply to your general
climatic condition.
