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.
Air and Water in the Environment
Young scholars demonstrate an awareness of air as a substance that surrounds us and takes up space, and whose movement we feel as wind. They predict and describe how local weather conditions affect living things, including themselves.
50th Anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education
Students examine a poster of Brown v. Board of Education and discuss what the important details are. They read the story behind the poster and court case. They role play different sections of the case such as the court case or Linda Brown's walk from home to school.
Teaching and Learning Through Objects
Students identify and interpret the function, usefulness or utitlity, form, beauty or aesthetics, and meaning, context or story, of objects and how they learn new skills and make things that they learn traditionally, by observation and imitation, in everyday life from people around them. They also identify who indigenous teachers are and how they affect them.
Ballooning Inside the Box
Learners use similar triangles to solve a real-world problem. For this geometry lesson, students explore properties of ratios and proportion as used in similar triangles and use proportions to determine the indirect height of an object.
Comprehension Quiz: Julie the Rockhound
In this online/interactive comprehensive quiz worksheet, students read the book Julie the Rockhound and answer specific questions about it. Students choose 10 multiple choice questions.
When Disaster Strikes! Rocks, Minerals, Erosion and Weather
Students pretend the area they live in is subject to wind, waves and rain. In groups, they pretend they are a groups of meteorologists or geologists and are to report on the weather and damage that could occur there. Each group develops a news report to present their findings to the class.
Building and Using Weather Instruments
Students build set of weather instruments (anemometer, wind vane, and rain gauge) and use them to collect weather data over a period of two weeks. They compare the data collected form the home-made instruments to commercially-made models.
Blowin' In The Wind
Students predict and hypothesize the reasons for wind movement. After viewing a video, they describe the effects of a high and low pressure system and what makes the wind blow. In groups, they construct instruments that measure air pressure and wind speed. They graph and analyze their data through daily observations.
Students examine how engineers utilize the wind. In this wind lesson plan students examine the different kinds of winds and measure wind direction.
Traditional Stories about Wind
Students observe and talk about wind using no weather instruments. In this wind lesson plan, students use their senses to observe wind. They also interview an Elder about wind.
Under the Weather
Students identify measurable characteristics about the weather and explore how they are monitored. They research and propose the construction of a weather monitoring station on their school grounds.
Writing Report on Weather Patterns
Second graders explore all facets of the weather, such as the weather cycle, how weather changes, how to read a thermometer, etc.
Investigating Density of Air
Students investigate the density of air. In this air density lesson plan, students complete an experiment to investigate that air has weight and changes with temperature. Students make a drawing for the experiment and label the picture. Students also study the hurricane worksheet to learn that warm air rises.
The Air Out There
Learners investigate air movement by constructing a windmill or a weathervane. In this physics lesson, students measure the speed of the air using their windmills and determine the direction the wind is blowing with their weathervane. Data is collected and reviewed as a whole class.
Tools of the Trade
Students investigate what tools to use, how to use them and how to use them safely in order to complete an investigation in science. In this lesson, the teacher will help students practice this skill.
Students predict the amount of snowfall for the week and measure snowfall. In this measuring snowfall lesson, student use a precipitation gauge to measure the week's snowfall; and analyze the data to determine whether or not the predictions were accurate. Separate templates provided for grades K-2 and 3-4.
Weather and Technology
Students discuss daily weather change, that we live in a world of symbols and innovations. They recognize the use of symbols to replace language and the value of technological innovation to improving our lives.
What is Weather?
Young scholars research weather information, decide on weather elements, create weather symbols, and prepare their poster board. They also identify specific weather symbols on a weather map in order to complete a worksheet on symbols.
What's Up With This Weather?
Students explore weather conditions. In this weather lesson, students maintain a graph of the daily temperature for two weeks and create simple weather instruments to help them learn more about weather conditions.
