Weather Balloon:

Students have begun our Deep Dive on the famous 5th Grade Weather Balloon! This week, students completed questionaries to apply for their job for this project. While we will be learning about weather, atmosphere, and meteorology, we will also be working on our collaborative skills within this deep dive. Students were asked to apply for a position and address the concerns they may face throughout this experience.
