Weather, Climate and Atmospheric Process
Learners explore Earth science by completing a could identification activity. In this weather lesson, students discuss the different forms of measurement for the weather of Earth. Learners discuss global warming and examine a list of weather measurement tools which use to complete cloud worksheets.
Clouds and Rain
Students study how clouds form, what different types there are and what rain is. In this atmospheric lesson plan students make a cloud and create evaporation.
Structure of the Earth
Seventh graders study the cause of climate change, and how clouds form and affect weather. They define condensation and precipitation, the greenhouse effect and the water cycle.
The Water Cycle
Seventh graders discover how water circulates through the earth and its atmosphere while determine how much of the Earth's water is suitable for drinking. They discover the meaning of evaporation, transpiration, and precipitation and draw models of the water cycle.
Water Studies: Precipitation and Population
In this water worksheet, students complete the chart about precipitation and population and answer short answer questions. Students complete 14 rows in the chart and answer 4 questions.
Mathematics and Ecology: Through the Window Garden
Student discover some of the ideas and concepts that make up the topic of Ecology. They read and interpret graphs to assimilate the information that is displayed. They discover the rate of increase of Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and the results on the ecosystems.
Climate Patterns across the United States
Students articulate differences between climate and weather using examples in a written statement. Using climate data from across the country, they describe climate patterns for various parts of the United States on a map. Students explain how land and water masses might affect temperature and precipitation using the climate data.
Weather: It Works, or Not?
Students discover the techniques meteorologists use to examine the atmosphere. In groups, they build their own weather station and observe the various weather conditions. They identify the types of weather patterns that allow the meteorologists to make forecasts.
In the Rain Shadow
Students, while utilizing a large wall map, experiment recording the annual precipitation for cities on the east and west sides of the Cascade Mountains. They discover that volcanic mountains do not have to erupt to affect the atmosphere.
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.
Hands-On Weather Data Collecting
Fifth graders use Internet sites to complete a study of weather and atmosphere. They compare weather data from cities around the world. They use thermometers, the Beaufort wind scale, and simple weather symbols to measure weather around the school.
The Lake Effect
Fourth graders conduct an experiment demonstrating the effects of water and air temperature on precipitation. They create graphs demonstrating their findings using Claris Works for Kids.
Students calculate weathering rates from tombstone weathering data. Atmospheric (and precipitation) chemistry determines the rate of weathering for marble tombstones. They are shown data from a rural and an unrban cemetery, and are asked to estimate rates, and then have them speculate as to why the rates are so different.
Earth Science - Weather
Middle schoolers build an understanding of the dynamics and composition of the atmosphere and its local and global processes influencing climate and air quality. They analyze air masses and the life cycle of weather systems.
What's the Connection?
Ninth graders identify the relationship between the ocean and the weather. For this meteorology lesson, 9th graders research the relationship between the ocean, lithosphere, and atmosphere. They create a multimedia poster to illustrate the connections.
Students explore how climatic factors influence the growth of plants. They create an experiment to find how variations in water, light, and temperature affect plant growth and describe how precipitation and geography can affect the growth of plants and animals in a certain region.
Twelfth graders consider the survival of prairie plants. They examine how some tallgrass prairie species are adapted to the conditions of their ecosystem. They make a prediction of how a species might change given new conditions.
Global Warming - The Heat is On: Global Climate Change Revisited
After listening to your lecture on climate change, young scientists access NOAA's database listing Mauna Loa's carbon dioxide data. They graph the monthly means and then compare their graphs to NOAA's. This is a concise plan that could serve as a support to your atmosphere curriculum.
Latent Heat and Clouds
Students explore latent heat and how it relates to clouds in the atmosphere. In this earth science lesson students investigate how clouds are formed. Students examine clouds and the water cycle.
How Mountains Shape Climate
Students use raw data to make a climatograph; they explain the process of orographic precipitation and the concept of a rain shadow.
