Harvest Water from Fog
Students investigate the different forms of water by turning fog into drinkable water. For 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.
How Clouds And Fog Are Formed
Learners 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.
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.
Create Your Own Fog
Young scholars conduct an experiment. In this science lesson, students create their own fog. Young scholars observe the results.
Harvesting Water from Fog
Students analyze the water issues of Cape Verde in the Peace Corp lesson. In this water resources lesson, students analyze the concept of water being harvested from fog. Students explore the Peace Corps project site by watching Nathan Lee's video and discuss possible solutions to the lack of fresh water.
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. The task is to match each graph with the corresponding weather description.
Create Your Own Fog
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.
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. From the information they collect, they determine the best place to fish, and where fog may be found.
Rain and Rainbows
Students explore the weather system by analyzing water properties. In this precipitation instructional 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.
Heat Absorption and Radiation
Students experiment with the concepts of absorption and reflection of radiant energy.
Students 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 plan, 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.
What happens when it's foggy?
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.
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.
Family Polar Fun Day
Family fun days are great for connecting home and school life, building strong parent/teacher relationships, and engaging young scholars in a fun and social way. Here are several activity ideas to help you and your class run your own Family Polar Fun Day. Each of the simple stations are described, easy to create, and include learning assessments as a way to incorporate academic skills development. Tip: Make fun day global and team up with other classrooms, each class can study and run activities that showcase aspects of various regions they have studied.
Students recognize the three main types of clouds. In this clouds lesson, students create a cloud mobile to understand clouds.
Water Cycle (Grades 2-4)
Students demonstrate their understanding of the water cycle and how it effects the environment by graphically depicting and describing the water cycle.
Three Clouds Activity
Students understand how clouds are formed. In this cloud lesson, students participate in three experiments to make clouds. Students complete activity sheets for each experiment.
Learners show how earthquakes affect sea waves. For this tidal waves lesson students use a rubber mallet on a table to create waves in a box on top of the table. They experiment with striking the mallet in different locations on the table. They draw pictures of what they saw.
Anatomy of a Virus
This PowerPoint summarizes details about the virus from the structure and reproduction methods to the different modes of infection. Various viral diseases of animals and plants, viroids, prions and genetic origins of viruses are discussed.
