The Relationship of Barometric Pressure and Behavior in Two Third Grade Classrooms
by Zerr, Trista Lee, M.S., Minot State University, 2017, 34; 10633965
Abstract (Summary)

Conventional wisdom strongly supports that people’s behavior is affected by the weather in many ways. But while the correlation between weather and student behavior if often accepted as popular fact amongst parents and educator’s alike, very little research exists to support this correlation and educators may be at risk for making teaching decisions based on inaccurate understandings. This correlational study investigated the relationship between barometric pressure and the behavior of third grade students in a rural setting. Results indicated no relationship between these variables. Implications for educational practice is discussed.
