How Clouds And Fog Are Formed
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.
3rd - 5th English Language Arts
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.
K - 1st English Language Arts
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.
4th - 6th Science
How Are Clouds and Fog Formed?
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.
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.
2nd - 6th Science
Weather - Clouds and Precipitation
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.
4th - 8th Science
How is the Weather?
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.
8th - 12th Math CCSS: Designed
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.
4th - 5th Science
In this weather activity, 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.
7th - 8th Science
When your environmental or earth science class is studying air pollution, you will want to take the time to go over this resource. Pupils peruse the history of air pollution regulations and examine outstanding diagrams of what contributes to smog in American cities.
6th - 8th Science CCSS: Adaptable
Ocean Currents and Sea Surface Temperature
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.
8th - 12th Science
Rain and Rainbows
Students explore the weather system by analyzing water properties. In this precipitation lesson, 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.
K - 5th Science
New Review Our Solar System
Take a trip to outer space with a resource about the planets in our solar system. Each page presents information about the atmosphere, moons, orbit, and surface of the planets, as well as the sun. An excellent addition to your unit on planet education!
