What is an urban heat island? Middle school meteorologists find out by comparing temperatures at different locations on campus. They relate their findings to what might be happening in a concrete jungle and how it impacts local weather. This resource provides an overview, teacher's instructions, background and extensions, a student handout, and links to relevant readings. It is a comprehensive collection that will add light to your weather unit.
