Using NASA's Live Access Server, earth scientists compare the temperature, precipitation, and normalized difference vegetation index for four different locations. They use the data to identify the climate zone of each location using the Koppen climate classification system. This is an excellent exploration for those studying climate and weather.
Twenty-two efficient slides comprise this presentation. Viewers will compare the Fahrenheit, Celsius, and Kelvin temperature scales. They will convert temperatures from one scale to another. Learning check slides with their solutions are included. Follow this PowerPoint with hands-on practice using thermometers and converting their measurements. It is appropriate for use with any science laboratory course.
In this temperature worksheet, students color a thermometer to depict the given temperature. They then compare, contrast temperatures and answer given thinking questions. There are approximately 20 questions on this one-page worksheet. An answer key is included.
Students investigate pressure and temperature relationship by conducting an experiment. In this chemistry lesson, students collect data using Vernier computer interface. They plot and analyze the resulting graphs.
Students conduct an experiment to determine the relationship between pressure and temperature. In this physical science lesson, students collect data and graph them. They compare the results of Celsius and Fahrenheit data sheets.
Students explore common tools used to measure weather. In this science lesson, students read a thermometer and discuss the various activities that one would participate in during that temperature.
Students study the effects of temperature and air expansion. In this temperature instructional activity, students discuss temperature and participate in a role play of low energy and high energy molecules. Students then discuss their activity and observations of energy.
Differentiate between temperature and thermal energy. Your class will build a thermometer using simple materials and develop their own scale for measuring temperature. Discuss with your class and consider why engineers need to understand the properties of thermal energy.
Students track weather from day to day and record results on graphs, maps, or other places. They see firsthand how weather temperatures trend cooler as fall progresses and practice grade-appropriate skills in geography (map location, color keys, more) and math (figuring temperature ranges, averages, more). They study practical skills that will last them a lifetime.
Young meteorologists keep track of the daily high temperatures for five consecutive days. They utilize a worksheet embedded in the plan to create a bar graph showing each of the daily temperatures. This worksheet could almost be considered a lesson plan; it's very good!
Students understand that temperatures in Alaska can be negative numbers. In this temperature lesson plan, students recognize the temperatures above and below zero. Students compare temperatures using the greater than and less than signs. students look at weather words from Alaska. Students complete a worksheet recording temperatures.
Students begin their examination of the climate zones found around the world. Using a software program, they identify the relationship between the vegetation, climate and temperatures of the different zones. They also plot coordinates using latitude and longitude.
Collecting and understanding data is a big part of understanding the world and how it changes. To better grasp what temperatures are changing and how they affect global populations, learners create a graph based on the date provided. They conduct a graphic analysis to see how temperatures in the troposphere are decreasing while temperatures in the stratosphere are increasing. To conclude the lesson plan, each child composes a story or narrative that describes the relationship of the data graphed and analyzed, and also its implications.
In this temperatures worksheet, learners read 7 clues and use their answers to fill in the temperature chart. All problems pertain to the rise and fall of temperatures in five cities.
In this resistance instructional activity, students solve 10 problems about the changes in resistance as the temperature changes in resistors.
Something we are so familiar with can be at the same time so mysterious! Ignite your physics learners' understanding of heat with this PowerPoint. By viewing this presentation, aided by your explanation, they will be able to relate heat and temperature, calculate specific heat, and describe thermal expansion. This is an ideal addition to your physics lecture about heat.
Students use data microsets of mean near-surface air temperature and tropospheric ozone residual averages to infer patterns. Students analyze changes in tropospheric ozone and then hypothesize about the consequences of these changes.
Learners relate heart rate and development to environmental conditions through experiment. In cooperative groups, students record the heart rate in developing zebra fish. Groups create a standard curve to predict the temperature at which a group of zebra fish embryos were raised.
Students conduct an experiment to determine what type of clothing would be most suitable for outdoor activities. They determine the temperature changes of the skin under various wet clothing materials and graph the temperature changes. Students write a report about what clothing materials would provide the best survival safety rate for hikers.
Students explore the concept of boiling water.  In this boiling water lesson plan, students determine the boiling temperature of water.  Students use a temperature probe and graphing calculator to collect data and graph it.
