Air Pressure/Temperature • Air pressure is affected by: • The air above it • Temperature • Temperature • How warm is the air?
Wind • Wind is moving air • Wind speed – how fast the air is moving • Caused by uneven heating of the earth’s air
Storms • Most common storm = thunderstorms • United States has more tornados than any other country • Tropical storms become hurricanes if wind speed reaches 74 mph
Life Science Weather affects our daily lives. • How does it affect humans? • How does it affect plants? • How does it affect animals?
Meterology • Uses instruments • Forecasts weather • Weather patterns are observed
Social Studies Disasters Geography Personal
Disasters Tornados Hurricanes
Geography • Where you live will determine • The seasons you will experience • The temperature • The amount and types of precipitation
Personal Why do we care about the weather? • It affects how you dress • It is dependent upon where you live • It can affect what you eat
Technology • Has expanded our ability to study the weather. • Internet • Instruments
Instruments Thermometer Wind Vane Anemometer Barometer Rain Gauge

Mathematics We will collect data and then construct graphs using the data.
Data Collection We will measure: • Temperature • Wind speed • Amount of rainfall
Graphing We will graph the following: • Bar graph of average temperature of each month • Line graph of anemometer readings (wind speed)
