Weather By Miss O.
What Will the Weather Be? • Directions: Listen to the book being read aloud and draw a web in your science notebook with the word “weather” in the middle. The web should have at least 6 cells coming out of it.
Go over the answers to the “Meteorologist’s Tool Box” homework page. • 1. A (mercury, alcohol) • 2. Uses mercury and is marked in millibars/MEASURE DIFFERENT THINGS • 3. A (wind speed) • 4. B. (balloon) • 5. radio waves bounce off large raindrops back to antennae and how fast the wind is blowing where it is raining. • D (colors) • C (millibars) • Coming precipitation (rain) Or a possible storm
Weather Tools Foldable • Directions: • 1. Write the name of the tool on the outside flap. • 2. Draw a picture of the tool on the inside flap. • 3. Write the definition of the tool across from your picture. • Don’t forget to put your name on the back and use it to study!
Barometer • Measures air pressure
Thermometer • Measures temperature the amount of heat in the air
Anemometer • Measures wind speed
Rain Gauge • Measures precipitation (rain, snow, hail, etc.)
Layers of the Atmosphere • Directions: In your science notebook, draw the layers of the atmosphere in an arch in their order with labels and color them the following colors: • 1. Troposphere • 2. Stratosphere • 3. Mesosphere • 4. Thermosphere
The 4 Layers of the Atmosphere: 4. Thermosphere 3. Mesosphere 2. Stratosphere 1. Troposphere
The Atmosphere Protects Us! • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaikvaAw2nk&feature=related&safety_mode=true&persist_safety_mode=1&safe=active Directions: While you watch this video, make a web in your science notebook with at least 8 cells with the word ATMOSPHERE in the middle!
Let’s Sing About the Atmosphere • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQPyNY2WIdw&safety_mode=true&persist_safety_mode=1&safe=active
Types of Clouds • Directions: After reviewing the 4 types of clouds and their definitions, we will use a large piece of blue construction paper, a sharpie, glue, and cotton balls to make those cloud types.
Cirrus • High, wispy ice clouds.
Cumulous • Fluffy low clouds
Stratus • Low clouds that block out sunlight
Cumulonimbus • Towering clouds that cause thunderstorms
Cloud Song by Miss O. • (to the tune of London Bridges) • Cirrus clouds are up so high, up so high, up so • Cirrus clouds are wispy ice, wispy ice and cold. • Stratus clouds are way down low, way down low, way down low. • Stratus clouds are flat and low. They block out the sunlight. • Cumulus are fluffy clouds, fluffy clouds, fluffy clouds. • Cumulus are fluffy clouds. They mean fair weather. • Cumu-lo-nimbus clouds are big, big and tall, big and tall. • Cumu-lo-nimbus mean thunderstorms. Thunderstorms are coming!
Fronts Go over homework answers from “Weather Fronts” reading. Directions: Today you will draw what a cold front looks like coming in and then what a warm front looks like coming in. Be sure to label and draw your arrows neatly. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPC5i6w3yDI&safety_mode=true&persist_safety_mode=1&safe=active
Cold Front: • Warm air is abruptly pushed upward, cooling, condensing moisture into cumulus or cumulonimbus clouds
Cold Front • Notice how steep the angle is between the two air masses • Typically brings sudden, heavy rains and storms
Warm Front • WARM FRONT: when a warm air mass moves into a colder,denser air mass. • Warm air rides up and over the colder air
Warm Front • The weather during a WARM FRONT starts with cirrus clouds about 24-48 hours before the rain begins • Cirrus clouds are “at the front of the front”
Warm Front • As more warm air is pushed upward, more moisture condenses forming cirrostratus clouds
Warm Front • As warm more warm air is pushed up, heavier clouds form mid-way up over the cold air • Altostratus and stratus
Enjoy the Song!Just listen or try to sing along! • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYu5ge4dc8c&safety_mode=true&persist_safety_mode=1&safe=active
Weather Maps • Go over the answers to the weather map reading together. • Directions: Today you will draw and label the symbols of a cold front, warm front, stationary front, as well as high and low pressure and be able to identify them on a map!
