Comparing Temperatures

Journal pages offer opportunities for exploration and discovery. A homeschooler from Iowa compared temperatures around the globe to help her predict garden emergence.

"I used a mini globe and the journal map to find places around the world with similar temperatures to Iowa this week. I located Iowa, then followed the dark green temperature bands to mark other countries on the map. My mini globe helped me find the country names." Anisel Homeschool, Pella, Iowa
