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 rain in a rain gauge and snow depth with a meter stick throughout the seasons. We calculated the p-value that describes the chances of getting our data if the null hypothesis is true.
