Students tackle the mysteries and wonders of weather in this Earth Science unit. The unit starts off with a "Weather Tracking Chart", which involves students measuring and tracking the weather on a daily basis. The core lessons provide basic weather topics such as temperature, wind, pressure, clouds and precipitation. Exciting activities integrated with student notes provide students with solid background information. The "Enrichment Lessons" focuses on the more dramatic — examining tornadoes, hurricanes, thunderstorms and the greenhouse effect, again using student notes and activities. This Earth Science lesson provides a teacher and student section with a variety of reading passages, activities, crossword, word search and answer key to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
