### 11.11 Bell Ringer

• Take out Meteorology Review Sheet

• Page #1 and Page #2 should be complete

• What will the weather be like in Southern Florida based on the map below? Write your claim and evidence.

### Standard

• S6E4. Students will understand how the distribution of land and oceans affects climate and weather

### Objectives

• Students should be able to demonstrate mastery (80% or above) of standards in Unit 2, or Meteorology.

• Students will have a deep understanding of Meteorology, or the study of weather as they prepare for their unit assessment.

• Students will be assessed through their participation in the Meteorology Sink or Swim Review game, and a cloze paragraph exit ticket.

### Meteorology Review Sheet

• Page #1 and #2

• Vocabulary Section

• Correct Answers that are incorrect. Make sure you are listening!

### Coriolis Effect

• Coriolis Effect: Earth’s rotation causes winds to blow in a ______________ path. Winds in the northern hemisphere move _______________, while winds in the Southern Hemisphere move ___________________.

### Coriolis Effect

• Coriolis Effect: Earth’s rotation causes winds to blow in a curved path. Winds in the northern hemisphere move clockwise/right, while winds in the Southern Hemisphere move counterclockwise/left.

### Factors Affecting Climate

Latitude, Proximity to Water, Altitude, Ocean Currents, Global Winds

• __________________Areas near large bodies of water typically have more mild winters and summer because water heats up and cools down slower than land.

• __________________Areas that are higher above sea-level are typically cooler.

• __________________Polar easterlies may bring dry, cooler climate to areas; Prevailing Westerlies may bring moist climate to areas (United States); Trade winds may bring moist, warm climate.

• __________________Areas that are located near the equator are typically warmer than areas located near the poles.

• __________________Areas near constant moving masses of warm-water heat up climate, while areas near constant moving masses of cold-water cool down climate.

### Factors Affecting Climate

Latitude, Proximity to Water, Altitude, Ocean Currents, Global Winds

• Proximity to Water: Areas near large bodies of water typically have more mild winters and summer because water heats up and cools down slower than land.

• Altitude: Areas that are higher above sea-level are typically cooler.

• Global Winds: Polar easterlies may bring dry, cooler climate to areas; Prevailing Westerlies may bring moist climate to areas (United States); Trade winds may bring moist, warm climate.

• Latitude: Areas that are located near the equator are typically warmer than areas located near the poles.

• Ocean Currents: Areas near constant moving masses of warm-water heat up climate, while areas near constant moving masses of cold-water cool down climate.

### U.S.A Test Prep: Sink or Swim Rules

• You MUST discuss the question and answer with all group members. If discussion is not occurring (example: one person is answering questions on their own), question will be marked incorrect

• No talking while questions are being read or answers are being explained

• Only one person from each group should be out of their seat at any given time

• 50 points deduction for not following rules

• 1st place= 5 spaces, 2nd=3 spaces, 3rd= 1 space

### Cloze Paragraph: Exit Ticket

• Silently fill out cloze paragraph exit ticket

• Add the word “Wind” in the word bank

• Turn in on your way out the door
