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.
World Meteorological Day
In this World Meteorological Day worksheet, students read or listen to a passage, then match phrases, fill in the blanks, choose the correct word, unscramble words and sentences, put sentences in order, write discussion questions and conduct a survey.
Meteorology - What is it?
Students explain and define the term, 'meteorology.' They examine the causes of the weather, explain how we forecast the weather and play a game which highlights why it rains.
Meteorology in the Classroom
Students discover meteorology. In this weather lesson, students explore the science of meteorology as they collect weather data and use weather reporting symbols appropriately.
Looking for a fine series of lessons on weather? These lessons are for you! Here, learners cover topics such as the hydrologic cycle, clouds, the atmosphere, air movement, weather fronts, and forecasting the weather. They engage in quite a few hands-on activities and experiments where they get to use real scientific equipment. This 29-page plan is chock-full of worksheets, resource links, and detailed descriptions of excellent activities.
Father of Satellite Meteorology
High schoolers investigate this lesson plan that features Dr. Verner Suomi, telling the story of why he became known as the Father of Satellite Meteorology. The activities include hands-on learning about satellites, applying knowledge of satellite imagery, and understanding more about occupational jargon.
What's the Weather
Students discover what meteorology is and they participate in the daily activities of meteorologists, observing the weather and recording their findings. Students also create weather instruments from household objects to help with their observations. Students then discuss how weather changes in association with clouds. Students also discuss how the weather effects us in our daily lives.
Students compare and contrast 3 types of extreme storms. They obtain real-time and historical meteorological data regarding 2 specific storms and then analyze the data to determine what type of storm each was.
Science: How's the Weather?
Fifth graders brainstorm meteorological terms to create a semantic web using SuperPrint. For each topic, they create instruments, such as barometers or psychomotors, that they use to make scientific predictions about the weather. After conducting their Internet research, 5th graders use AppleWorks to organize their data.
Do You Need a Map?
Students investigate marine navigation. Students access nowCOAST on the Internet and explore marine navigation in modern society. Students obtain and explain the importance of accessing real-time oceanographic and meteorological data.
La Meteorology: Matching
Are you looking to incorporate an element of science in your french classroom? Test your francophone scientists on their knowledge of meteorological terms in French. Create note cards with pictures and definitions to increase vocabulary development before testing them with this resource.
Students study basic meteorology concepts. They build a simple barometer to measure air pressure. They explore the concepts of relative humidity, air convection currents and temperature inversions and to discover their connection to weather prediction.
Weather Sayings: Wind from the West
Students study what a proverb is. They research how proverbs as folklore forecasts fit with other types of forecasting methods. Students comprehend that weather lore is a part of everyday life and linked to cultural communities. They investigate also the different types of predictive methods used in meteorology.
Earth Science Integration
Ninth graders define climatology, meteorology, geology, and topography, as well as other vocabulary related to these topic areas. They investigate the Earth's past climate history and make predictions for the future.
Testing the Accuracy of a Rain Gauge
Students identify and test variables that may affect the accuracy of a rain gauge. They share findings of their research with the class in a 'mini-meteorology-convention'. They design an experiment with a control setup to test their variable.
Beary O'Mometer Learns About Careers In Meteorology
Students explore the field of meteorology. In this meteorology lesson, students explore weather-related careers as they research the field of study as well as various weather concepts. Students interview meteorologists, write business letters, write job descriptions, and create PowerPoint presentations regarding weather careers.
Young scholars gain an understanding of how meteorology affects our physical world and our lives. They utilize resources on web-based activities and participate in the classroom activities to enrich their understanding.
La Meteorology: Matching
Build your French weather-related vocabulary with the 17 terms provided here. Simple terms like le vent or atmosphere are included, but some more advanced vocabulary, like conduction and convection, are also included.
What's the Weather?
Students are introduced to the concept that weather can change daily and that weather patterns change over the seasons. They use video, experiments and observational skills to explore how the weather affects human lives.
The Weather Classroom - Atmosphere
Meteorology learners explore the weight of air, layers of the atmosphere, and air pressure action through a series of discussions, demonstrations, and hands-on group activities. Enough discussion prompts, background information, student handouts, and internet resources are provided to build a complete atmosphere mini-unit.
