SNOWY Day! 2015

There's lots to learn today as students return to school after another record breaking snow fall.

First, these storms have made history. What does that mean?

Next, we can consider the role that cartoonists play at times like this by bringing humor to the situation and letting us see the event with "new eyes."

After that, we can determine how many feet of snow we have on the ground.

Then, we will use  relevant statistics to study the meaning of statistics, practice ordering and reading numbers with decimals, and compute the differences in snow fall totals between storms and winters past.

In all, we'll discuss how statistics help us to make decisions, describe an event, and see that event in relation to other events in history.

We'll use the images below, images that have been shared via Facebook.

Note that this image was edited for a one-day use at school. Students will discuss
the meaning of the clever cartoon that’s spreading over social media.
