Mrs. Theado's class had been studying weather and using weather tools to help us measure the weather. A few weeks ago we had a lot of rain, so we were excited to see how much precipitation our rain gauge collected. However, when we went to check on it we noticed that it had fallen over! This led us to ask questions such as, "What caused our rain gauge to fall over?" and most importantly, "How can we make sure it doesn't fall over next time?". The students then collaborated in groups to create a solution to our problem. After that, they communicated their ideas to the class. The class had the opportunity to ask each other questions about their solutions and defend it by communicating how they were solving the problem. The students voted that burying the rain gauge deeper was our best solution. We tried it out and...it worked!
