  1. Science Test on Clouds, Water Cycle, Weather Station Science Test on Clouds, Water Cycle, Weather Station

  2. Clouds 1. _____Clouds form in blanklet-like layers Stratus

  3. 2. Puffy clouds that appear to rise up from a flat bottom are ________ clouds Cumulus

  4. 3. _____ Clouds form at high altitudes out of ice crystals and have a wispy featherlike shape. Cirus

  5. 4. If rain or snow falls from a cloud, the term ______(which means “rain”) is added to the cloud’s name. nimbo

  6. 5. As water vapor rises higher and higher in the sky it ____ and may form _____ Clouds Condenses

  7. 6. All clouds form in the _____________________ or the lowest layer of the atmosphere. troposphere

  8. 7. Clouds are grouped in families by their __________and _________ Height Shape

  9. 8._________Clouds are usually present during fair weather, but can turn into thunderclouds Cumulus Play the cloud matching game http://eo.ucar.edu/webweather/cloudmatch.html

  10. The Water Cycle 9. The __________is most responsible for our weather and warming the water and land. Sun

  11. 10. ____________Water which accumulates on the soil surface as a result of rainfall and flows over the soil surface from higher to lower land. Run-off

  12. Evaporation 11. The process of liquid becoming water vapor as it leaves the earth’s surface and enter the atmosphere is called __________ Evaporation

  13. 12. Liquid or frozen water droplets fall to Earth as rain, snow, sleet or hail is called __________________ Precipitation

  14. 13. On a hot sunny day, I hung my clean clothes on the line to dry. As the clothes dry the water ___________________into the _______________air evaporates Warm

  15. 14. A puddle may change shape and become smaller on a hot sunny day because it is changing from a ______to a _____which we call, evaporation liquid gas

  16. 15. _________energy, or energy from the sun is the type of energy responsible for evaporation. Solar

  17. 16. When warm air full of water vapor meet cool air, _________ occurs in the form of tiny water droplets, similar to the droplets we found on the outside of our glasses. condensation

  18. 17. Tiny water droplets attach to dust particles in the sky and form ______________________ Clouds

  19. Weather Station 18. A ______________measures the pressure in the air Barometer Barometer Look at the pointer on the barometer. 1. What type weather will you have based on the barometric pressure? 2. What number would the pointer be on to tell us it is going to be a sunny day? 1030 barometric pressure Cloudy

  20. 19. A hygrometer measures ____________________or the moisture in the air Bonus: If the temperature is zero degrees, then what would reading would be on the hydrometer? humidity 25% If it is zero degrees outside, would it be winter or summer? Winter

  21. 20. A _________is a glass tube that measures the air temperature. Approximately what temperature is it? Would it be cold, warm or hot outside? Thermometer 75 degrees and warm outside

  22. 21. As we checked out weather station, we became ___________________or people that study the weather and deep data about its patterns meteorologist

  23. 22. To find the average monthly temperature for Raleigh, NC you would _____the temperature for each day and then ______the sum the total number of days in the month. add divide 527÷7 = 750

  24. 23. Warm air rises and is called ________ updrafts

  25. 24. A_________is cool air falling back to the earth’s surface. Drown draft

  26. 25. Air that moves horizontally is called _________. It is created by the heating and cooling rates of soil and water. wind

  27. 26. The weight of air can also be called air ________. A high pressure system will usually be followed by sunshine. pressure Where is the high pressure Moving toward? East, West, North or south? Moving East

  28. 27. The thinner air affects temperature because thin air holds less ___________. heat

  29. 28. _________ usually follows a high pressure system. Which picture represents this statement Sunshine, A

  30. 29. High winds will most likely cause temperatures to _______________ decrease

  31. Mountains, Sea breezes & latitude 30. The temperature at the______of the mountain is cooler that the temperature at the ________ of the mountain. top bottom Mountain goats go (migrate) up the mountain in the summer to cool off.

  32. 31. As you get closer to the center of the Earth or the _________ temperatures tend to be warmer, these areas are called tropical. equator equator

  33. 32. Sue lives in Oklahoma and has no large bodies of water near her. Sue most likely experiences warm ______and cool winters. Tom lives near the Pacific Ocean in San Francisco, California (CA) where temperatures are less varied from season to season. summers

  34. 33. In our soil and water experiment, the soil represented the _______ and the water represented lakes and oceans. earth

  35. 34. Soil tends to heat up and cool down fast while ______takes longer to heat but holds the warmth longer. water

  36. 35. You are walking on the beach and feel the warm sand under your feet. The water is still cool. This is because the sun warms ______more quickly than _____. soil water You go to the beach in May and the air temperature is 90 degrees, but beach water is still cold. Why?

  37. What was your score?1st time______2nd time______3rd time______ Great Job!!!
