    Note Taking Sheet (Meteorologist)
    Have students track weather in different areas for 5 days. Compare to Birmingham. Graph and discuss why there are differences. Then they could write a persuasive argument on where they would rather live and why (comparing the different cities). OR write a story based off of City Mouse, Country Mouse (Northern Mouse, Southern Mouse).
