After​ ​teacher shows​ ​different data ​relating​ ​to each​ ​days; ​high temp, ​low ​temp, and ​average temp. ​Students can ​create​ ​a bar​ ​graph​ ​or​ ​a line​ ​chart​ ​to show ​the average temperature throughout​ ​the season Student​ ​will use​ ​Microsoft Excel ​or Google​ ​Drive to​ ​create​ ​a graph​ ​or​ ​chart to​ ​represent the​ ​data organized. Teacher​ ​will grade​ ​the graph​ ​or chart according​ ​to the​ ​accuracy of​ ​the average temperature represented in ​the​ ​graph. Student​ ​will be​ ​able​ ​to print​ ​out​ ​the graph​ ​they have​ ​created, and ​add ​it​ ​to their portfolios. ISTE​ ​NETS ​FOR ​TEACHERS 2) Design ​and ​develop​ ​digital ​age learning​ ​experiences​ ​and assessments a) Design ​or​ ​adapt​ ​relevant​ ​learning experiences​ ​that​ ​incorporate​ ​digital tools​ ​and ​resources​ ​to​ ​promote student​ ​learning​ ​and ​creativity. ISTE​ ​NETS ​FOR ​STUDENTS 3) Research​ ​and ​information fluency. d) Process​ ​data ​and ​report​ ​results. TEKS ​111.5 1) Mathematical ​process standards. ​The​ ​student​ ​uses mathematical ​processes​ ​to​ ​acquire and ​demonstrate​ ​mathematical understanding.  D) communicate​ ​mathematical ideas, ​reasoning, ​and ​their implications​ ​using​ ​multiple representations​ ​including​ ​symbols, diagrams, ​graphs​ ​and ​language​ ​as appropriate.   Science What​ ​is photosynthesis? As​ ​an introduction discuss photosynthesis in ​general. Explain ​the process​ ​of photosynthesis in ​food, ​and plants. Make​ ​them read ​a ​story about​ ​the process.
