Science, Math, Information Technology, Culture Project Overview Learning Areas Levels 4th/5th Grade Objectives Locate and research the city and people of Kobe. Gather data to determine the time difference between Seattle and Kobe. Create a collage showing the simultaneous actions of students in Seattle and students in Kobe. Description Students will collaboratively research the time difference between Seattle and our sister city: Kobe, Japan. Students will research and graph the time difference between the cities, learning about the city and people of Kobe along the way. The project will culminate with a collage of what is happening simultaneously in Seattle and Kobe. Software Keywords Microsoft Office Excel, Bing Search Engine, Bing Maps, AutoCollage Seattle, Kobe, Japan, Time Zones, Cultural Differences Authors Danielle Gowan, University of Washington, Seattle, WA Documents
Teacher Planning and Management There are three main parts to this lesson. These parts should be split into separate time frames. Part Two will involve intermittent data gathering over the course of 24 hours, before Part Three can be started. The classroom for which this project is appropriate has access to and prior experience with technology. Small groups will need access to internet-connected computers, and students should have some experience using Bing Search engine and Microsoft Office Excel. If this is not the case, time should be spent teaching these skills before the lesson. Possibilities for introducing Excel in a less intensive way are presented in the lesson. Students will also be using Bing Maps and AutoCollage, but there is room for exploration of these programs built into the lesson. This lesson is building toward the scientific concept that the Earth orbits the sun, creating night and day simultaneously on opposite sides of the planet. This is a culture-based exploration of time zones meant to be taught as an introduction to that broader scientific concept. Documents
