Abstract

Fostering a Sense of Place at Walter Strom Middle School, 7th grade students conducted inquiry based investigations in the outdoor classroom. Data was collected several times per month throughout the school year. We measured wind speed with an anemometer in different cardinal directions from 2 permanent plots - one in the open and one in the forest. We used statistical test toe decide if we thought that our hypothesis or null hypothesis was true.
