We have moved: Join us at the new site for 2013 at: http://samedayinmarch2013.wikispaces.com

Join us as we use the book "
On The Same Day In March" by Marilyn Singer to learn about weather around the world. Tell the rest of the world what it is like in your city on this day. (You don't have to buy the book to do this activity.)

UPDATE: If you have not created a page for your classroom, please do so now. I would like to begin to do some activities so we can get to know each other before the "day in March."

If you have joined this project, would you please email me at: cgrossrhode@gmail.com so I can get your emails. I want to set everyone up as collaborators for the map and need email addresses. I will also send a listing of email addresses and grade levels to all participants as we get closer to March.

We are all familiar with the March saying "In like a lion, out like a lamb." If March begins with bad weather (in like a lion), it will end with good weather (out like a lamb). It also means that if March begins with good weather (in like a lamb), it will end with bad weather (out like a lion.) Let's see if that actually happens in each of our communities. We will use the page
In like a lion... (see link near the links to other pages) to track the temperature and weather for both days.

Check out 'Other Resources' link. This has a few links on web sites and iPad apps that can be used to help with the project. Feel free to add more ideas to the Resources page.

When you first read the book, you will notice the descriptions of the weather and environment as the main emphasis. When you read it more thoroughly, look at the references to the weather that people in other regions may not understand. There are text or pictorial references to things other than the weather. Think of how you can describe these things also.

To begin your page:
1) Once you join the wiki, open "Sample Page.
2) Copy the text on Sample Page.
3) Click on New Page link in sidebar and create a wiki page using the name of your city, state and country.
4) Paste the copied text and use that as a format to create a wiki page for telling us about your territory.
5) Eventually we will add what happened on the day in March. (The date is yet to be chosen. We are waiting on suggestions from members)

*Read the Formatting Guide for Teachers page for information about formatting text and placing graphics on your page. I'm open to suggestions on how to improve this layout, so email me ideas.*
