Presentation Transcript

  1. Welcome

  2. Weather • Science • Social Studies • Technology • Language Arts • Mathematics

  3. Science Earth Meteorology Life

  4. Earth Science • Water Cycle • Clouds • Precipitation • Air Pressure/ Temperature • Wind • Storms

  5. Cloud Types Cirrus Cumulus Stratus Nimbostratus Cumulonimbus

  6. Condensation Precipitation Water Cycle Evaporation

  7. Precipitation Rain Sleet Snow Hail

  8. Air Pressure/Temperature • Air pressure is affected by: • The air above it • Temperature • Temperature • How warm is the air?

  9. Wind • Wind is moving air • Wind speed – how fast the air is moving • Caused by uneven heating of the earth’s air

  10. Storms • Most common storm = thunderstorms • United States has more tornados than any other country • Tropical storms become hurricanes if wind speed reaches 74 mph

  11. Life Science Weather affects our daily lives. • How does it affect humans? • How does it affect plants? • How does it affect animals?

  12. Meterology • Uses instruments • Forecasts weather • Weather patterns are observed

  13. Social Studies Disasters Geography Personal

  14. Disasters Tornados Hurricanes

  15. Geography • Where you live will determine • The seasons you will experience • The temperature • The amount and types of precipitation

  16. 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

  17. Technology • Has expanded our ability to study the weather. • Internet • Instruments

  18. Instruments Thermometer Wind Vane Anemometer Barometer Rain Gauge

  19. Internet Local Weather http://www.weather.com Storm Tracking

  20. Language Arts Literature Research

  21. Literature Activities with this lesson: Song:include 4 elements of the water cycle Poem: include 4 types of precipitation Windy Writing: how wind works for us Tornado Novel, The Tornado Watches: creative stories

  22. Trade Books “The Cloud Book” “The Weather Sky” “The Magic School Bus Inside a Hurricane” “The Magic School Bus Kicks Up a Storm” “Wild Weather Blizzards” “Hurricanes and Tornadoes” Internet http://www.noaa.gov http://www.tornadoproject.com http//www.weather.com Research

  23. Mathematics We will collect data and then construct graphs using the data.

  24. Data Collection We will measure: • Temperature • Wind speed • Amount of rainfall

  25. Graphing We will graph the following: • Bar graph of average temperature of each month • Line graph of anemometer readings (wind speed)

  26.
