Graphing Spring & Neap Tide Data

This week we've been taking a close look at tidal data from around the world.  As part of our studies of Spring and Neap tides, we charted tide heights in Boston and Saint Johns Bay.  By comparing the data, we can clearly see that the tidal ranges in Saint John's Bay are almost double that of those in Boston.

Working with all of these numbers can really make your head spin!  Luckily, we were able to take a break from our studies when Macy, the therapy dog, stopped by our classroom.  Macy visits hospitals and nursing homes to provide comfort to those how are dealing with health issues.
