You will continue to work on the impact of climate change in a specific location. Keep track of your work since it will be important for your final project!
In WEEK 4 you made FOUR predictions or hypotheses about the impact of temperature changes on your location.
PLEASE NUMBER YOUR RESPONSES!
1. Remind me (and you!): What were your predictions?
1a. WRITE prediction 1
1b. WRITE prediction 2
1c. WRITE prediction 3
1d. WRITE prediction 4
You used multiple websites to explore climate change in your location:

2. Use these websites to identify EVIDENCE that supports your FOUR hypotheses or predictions. EXPLAIN this evidence – make sure you cite your sources. Feel free to explore beyond these websites as well – you will need to find additional resources for the WEEK 8 homework.
2a. I predicted that snowfall would increase in E. Lansing over the next 50 years. Website http://fakesite.com contains a map that shows that snowfall is expected to double in E. Lansing by 2040 and stay that way until 2060.
