Storming the Web
Students explore the importance of weather prediction and the Internet's role in changing the way weather is reported. By participating in an Internet scavenger hunt, students appreciate the role weather prediction through the Internet plays.
Students determine how to read and record weather data. They use maps, legends, graphs, charts and lists. They read a Washington Post article entitled, "Hi, Sky: How Weather Works."
Fourth graders explore the design and workings of meteorology through this unit of nine lessons. The interactions of Earth's systems, its structure, and its dynamic changes are probed.
The Robot Archaeologist
Students discover what is needed to program an underwater robot to complete a course of action. In this robot archaeologist instructional activity students design an archaeological strategy of an underwater vehicle.
ELD Lesson Plan: Nature's Fury
What happens during a natural disaster? Science and language arts come together in this resource, which works from three Houghton-Mifflin stories ("Earthquake Terror," "Eye of the Storm: Chasing Storms with Warren Faidley," and "Volcanoes"). ELD pupils will benefit from the differentiated vocabulary lists and sentence frames. The stories and provided questions help them practice sequencing events, expressing fact and opinion, and comparing and contrasting details.

Water Web-- Weather: Something We Talk a Lot About But Can't Change
In this science worksheet, students study weather prediction by reading and completing activities in this 8 page newsletter. Students classify clouds, study weather prediction instruments, learn weather proverbs and signs and learn to make a barometer
Warning Signs for Dangerous Times
Students explore the use of storm-tracking technologies, research and present how they forecast natural disasters, and assess the importance of these technologies.
What Weather When and Where?
Students learn the difference between hard news and feature writing. They choose one of these news styles to write a compelling weather-related article based on interviews with local sources.
Marine Explorers in the Santa Monica Bay
Students build a database with information from their data sets on different water samples. In groups, they locate coordinates found on a GPS system and analyze the differences in habitats from climate changes. They discover how non-point pollution affects Santa Monica Bay and use data from today to predict future events.
The Ridge Exploring Robot
Young scholars study about an autonomous underwater vehicle and explain the strategies that it uses to locate and map hydrothermal vents. In this marine navigation activity students design a program for an AUV survey.
Reading a Local and National Weather Map
Students investigate weather maps. In this weather lesson, students discover the meaning of different weather icons and symbols. Working independently, students use the local forecast to correctly label a state map.
Clarify colon misconceptions with this explanatory handout. Get into the nitty-gritty of grammar with multiple examples of the proper use of the colon. While this isn't an interactive handout, it could be used as a grammar guide for your class.
Hunt For Supertwister
Students identify the best time of year and place to position spotters for possible tornado outbreaks. They research tornado formations, spotting, and safety. Students present their information using a poster, a mock-up of a newspaper, a multimedia presentation, or a play.
