Rainfall Statistics

Recording rainfall is one of the important tasks of weather stations. Meteorologists, farmers, civil engineers and many other professionals use the rain data in their activities. For example farmers and other agricultural experts use the rainfall data along with some other information to determine which plants are appropriate for each area. Civil engineers will use the rain data to plan sewer systems. In this project you will use a rain gauge to record the rainfall in your area for a few days or weeks. You can present your results in the form of a table and a graph.

Who can do this project: 
Recording rain gauge is a good Earth Science project experiment for students in grades 1 to 4. Students will learn the use of a measuring device, practice recording data and drawing a graph.
