So with all this research comes time to talk about what all the data really tells us. Students are specifically looking at various graphs related to heartworm incidence over time, as well as average temperature and precipitation levels in the contiguous United States.
These data sets are helping us better understand and gather evidence for why heartworm continues to spread in the US, despite efforts to prevent it.
We've got one more day of researching, and that's all about natural disasters, like hurricanes! Keep up the great work, 6th grade!
