Upper graders and middle schoolers make up a scenario of planning outdoor concert locations for their favorite musical group. They do this by looking into the weather patterns in a variety of tropical regions. They research where and when severe weather happens in these regions, and work together to come up with a proposed itinerary for their band that should keep them "dry" during their performances. A great teaching idea, and a wonderful lesson plan!
Students see how temperatures across the United States vary. They use technology in order to find, print, and produce a color-coded weather map. They utilize worksheets and websites imbedded in this plan to help them with their project.
Research the necessary components of a planet that supports life after reading the article "All of a Sudden, The Neighborhood Looks a Lot Friendlier" from The New York Times. After finding their information, middle and high schoolers create short science fiction stories in which they incorporate their research.
Students identify ways to prepare for natural disasters. In this disaster preparation lesson plan, students read about disaster prevention devices and study cut-outs of six different disaster prevention devices. Students use a weather map to glue the various prevention devices to the proper locations in the world where they would be helpful. The map and cut-outs are included in this lesson plan.
In this water web worksheet, students explore, analyze and discuss how weather stations interact with maintaining weather conditions and answer two essay questions and ten multiple choice questions.
Students research, interpret, and become able to explain general characteristics of weather in tropical regions. Students observe and compare tropical and mid-latitude weather patterns.
Students study the classification system of tornadoes. In this tornado lesson students make their own tornadoes in different mediums.
Students explore weather terminology and the jobs that are associated with it. In this weather lesson plan students write about thunderstorms and make a tornado.
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."
High schoolers discover what is needed to program an underwater robot to complete a course of action. In this robot archaeologist lesson students design an archaeological strategy of an underwater vehicle.
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.
Ninth graders examine scientific evidence on The Big Bang Theory. This lesson provides inquiry activities for some, but not all, lines of evidence for The Big Bang. Students will apply research guidelines to access scientifically valid evidence via library and/or Internet searches.
Ninth graders study the Big Bang theory. In this big bang theory lesson students research the Internet and complete several activities and create a presentation.
Students investigate basic information about high- and low-pressure fronts and how they affect the weather. They observe weather patterns and cloud formations. Students study the basic pattern of movement of high- and low-pressure weather systems.
In this science activity, 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
Students explore the use of storm-tracking technologies, research and present how they forecast natural disasters, and assess the importance of these technologies.
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.
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.
Middle schoolers study technology and the different reproductive technologies available today. In this human reproductive technology lesson students describe how engineers create technologies to improve the health of mothers and babies.
