Students investigate the different forms of water by turning fog into drinkable water. In this harvesting lesson, students discuss and observe photographs of fog and why it is essential for some countries to collect water from fog using simple tools. Students utilize pantie hose, a coat hanger, can and humidifier to create a fog net and use it in class.
Students define what a cloud is and what fog is. After a lecture/demo, students participate in an experiment on how clouds and fog are formed. In pairs, they perform the experiment a second time, record their results and present to the class.
Students conduct an experiment. In this science lesson, students create their own fog. Students observe the results.
Create a fog chamber in a jar in order to explore the process of fog or cloud formation. A materials list and assembly instructions are explained, as well as a section about what to notice during the exploration. The laboratory sheet is not written in standard scientific method format. Another unfortunate error is that the vapor is refered to as "smoke" several times. Perhaps you can use this resource for your own reference, but create a separate handout for your class.
Fifth graders investigate how clouds and fog are made of tiny droplets of water. They discuss how clouds and fog are formed, then conduct an experiment in which they observe what happens when an ice cube is placed on top of a bottle containing a small amount of cold water.
Students describe weather conditions and climates. They describe patterns of changing weather and how they are measured. Students explain and predict general weather patterns and storms. Students form fog in a jug.
This activity asks learners to interpret data displayed on a graph within the context of the problem. Students are given three graphs that show solar radiation, or intensity of the sun, as a function of time. They are also given three statements describing the status of the weather during the day. The task is to match each graph with the corresponding weather description.
Weather and the days of the week are the focus on a fun kindergarten activity. Using a word bank with weather words, kids match the pictures of snow, wind, rain, and sun to their correct terms. They then draw a picture for the weather Monday through Friday, based on instructions.
In this weather worksheet, students conduct an experiment where they record the weather observations for a week. Then they determine the air pressure using an aneroid barometer and estimate the amount of sky covered by clouds. Students also explain the relationship between low barometric pressure and the presence of clouds and precipitation.
In this composition of the air worksheet, students answer questions about the air, what it is composed of and the components of air such as the ozone layer, fog and rain.
Students use satellite data to explore sea surface temperature. They explore the relationship between the rotation of the Earth, the path of ocean current and air pressure centers. After studying maps of sea surface temperature and ocean surface winds, students discuss and map, the cold and warm currents. From the information they collect, they determine the best place to fish, and where fog may be found.
Students explore the weather system by analyzing water properties. In this precipitation activity, students review weather related vocabulary terms and discuss how rainbows are created by light hitting droplets at the right time. Students conduct a rainbow experiment by utilizing an electric kettle, cotton balls, mirrors and other household objects.
Students experiment with the concepts of absorption and reflection of radiant energy.
Learners brainstorm and define five terms for precipitation, discuss reasons why English language includes various terms for wet weather, and create word games such as jumbles, word searches, or crossword puzzles with weather terms.
Students explore clouds. In this clouds lesson, students read The Cloud Book by Tomie de Poala. Students also research information regarding 5 types of clouds and their attributes and participate in activities that require them to make cloud models.
Students use conditional verbs to create sentences from pictures. In this conditional verb lesson, students answer the discussion questions using conditional verbs. Sample sentences are provided that can be used for dialogue practice.
In this earth science worksheet, students identify and explain the various types of clouds in the sky. Then they draw a picture of the clouds they see and describe them. Students also describe what makes clouds and draw what they think how one forms.
A well-done presentation on some of the many facets of water awaits your learners. They review the three forms (states) of water, and where they occur in nature. The presentation includes labeled diagrams of the water cycle, condensation and precipitation cycles, and the cycle that causes water pollution. An amazing amount of information in just 20 slides!
It's raining! It's pouring! Your class will not be snoring when viewing this presentation. Cloud formation and types are explained in the first half. Forms of precipitation are detailed in the second half. Concepts are explained thoroughly and the overall presentation is attractive. Consider replacing some of the photos that are not very crisp to make this PowerPoint a top-notch resource to use with your meteorology unit.
Introduce fourth and fifth graders to the different types of clouds with this presentation. The descriptions are simplistic and include the type of weather associated with each. You may want to replace the photos on each page with some that are a little brighter or have more obvious examples of the cloud types.
