    Description

    In this series of explore, explain, and elaborate activities, students discover the factors that influence regional climate patterns -- latitude, atmospheric circulation, elevation, mountains, and bodies of water.

    These resources are a part of the middle school unit Organisms and Their Environments. If you are interested in the complete unit, you can find additional activities at iExploreScience on TeachersPayTeachers.

    This resource is part of a complete unit that builds towards these standards:

    MS-LS2-1 Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an ecosystem.

    MS-LS2-2 Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems.

    MS-ESS2-4 Develop a model to describe the cycling of water through Earth's systems driven by energy from the sun and the force of gravity. 

    MS-ESS2-5 Collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses result in changes in weather conditions.

    MS-ESS2-6 Develop and use a model to describe how unequal heating and rotation of the Earth cause patterns of atmospheric and oceanic circulation that determine regional climates.

    NGSSMS-ESS2-6
    Develop and use a model to describe how unequal heating and rotation of the Earth cause patterns of atmospheric and oceanic circulation that determine regional climates. Emphasis is on how patterns vary by latitude, altitude, and geographic land distribution. Emphasis of atmospheric circulation is on the sunlight-driven latitudinal banding, the Coriolis effect, and resulting prevailing winds; emphasis of ocean circulation is on the transfer of heat by the global ocean convection cycle, which is constrained by the Coriolis effect and the outlines of continents. Examples of models can be diagrams, maps and globes, or digital representations. Assessment does not include the dynamics of the Coriolis effect.
