Product Description

Middle school science students can explore the causes of climate on their own with this blended learning activity. Teachers can give directions and then let their students explore at their own pace. I give each student a copy of the slideshow (attached) on google slides and then they can explore the links and create their own products throughout the exploration. The kids get very creative. Some activities ask them to answer questions, create resources, answer another student's letter, create drawings and diagrams, and more! Students can also have a choice of which activity they would like to choose depending on what their preferences are! For each cause of climate (latitude, elevation, distance to water, and ocean currents) students have some choice in how they will learn or demonstrate their learning.

In my classroom, this entire activity took 3-5 class periods depending on the students. The cumulative assignment was an essay in which the students described the causes of climate.

For your classroom, you can edit any or all of the assignment! Change it so that they have less option, or print the activities and do them as a whole-class, extend the essay, or cut out the essay entirely; whatever works best for your classroom!
