“Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get.” Mark Twain

The one topic that is always a current event, whereever you go, is the WEATHER. This challenge is to refresh and learn knowledge so that when you talk about the weather you really have important facts to add to the conversation! As an added skill, you will practice TIME MANAGEMENT!

 

There are 50 questions. You have eight days to answer each question. 

1. Using your math skills, figure out how many questions you need to complete each day. (use division)

2. Decide how you will manage your time.

3. Get busy learning all about why we have weather!

Checking your Moodle grade would also be advisable.
