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.
After diagramming the layers of the atmosphere and compare them your students develop questions about the weather. Your class explore what makes up the air, research websites, and create a model to show 'Atmospheric Absorption.' Students complete two experiments and a crossword puzzle.
Students examine what acid precipitation is and how it is produced and become acquainted with the effects of acid precipitation on plants and animals in the Northern Forest. Students participate in three activities in which they discover common substances that are acidic, determine the approximate pH of common substances, and make acid rain.
Young scientists explore Earth elements by conducting an experiment. They define water vocabulary terms such as condensation and precipitation. In addition, they conduct a water experiment in which they build a terrarium, so they can observe a smaller scale water cycle in their class.
