Product Description
Description
This is a multipage reference on the topics of weather and climate to include cursory information on global warming and climate change. By including this information I am neither advocating for or against these theories but am instead including them for the sake of information. This resource seeks to highlight the fact that weather is a short-term condition while climate is just the opposite, long-term. As adults, we seem to have forgotten this, and it shows.

Standards
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ESS2.C: The Roles of Water in Earth's Surface Processes
The complex patterns of the changes and the movement of water in the atmosphere, determined by winds, landforms, and ocean temperatures and currents, are major determinants of local weather patterns. (MS-ESS2-5)
Variations in density due to variations in temperature and salinity drive a global pattern of interconnected ocean currents. (MS-ESS2-6)
ESS2.D: Weather and Climate
Weather and climate are influenced by interactions involving sunlight, the ocean, the atmosphere, ice, landforms, and living things. These interactions vary with latitude, altitude, and local and regional geography, all of which can affect oceanic and atmospheric flow patterns. (MS-ESS2-6)
Because these patterns are so complex, weather can only be predicted probabilistically. (MS-ESS2-5)
The ocean exerts a major influence on weather and climate by absorbing energy from the sun, releasing it over time, and globally redistributing it through ocean currents. (MS-ESS2-6)
ESS3.D: Global Climate Change
Human activities, such as the release of greenhouse gases from burning fossil fuels, are major factors in the current rise in Earth’s mean surface temperature (global warming). Reducing the level of climate change and reducing human vulnerability to whatever climate changes do occur depend on the understanding of climate science, engineering capabilities, and other kinds of knowledge, such as understanding of human behavior and on applying that knowledge wisely in decisions and activities. (MS-ESS3-5)

Printing
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Document dimensions 24"x36" (poster-size). It will print safely on regular copy paper. Make sure that you have your settings to fit the document to print before you actually print. Not a lot of wall space? Want to save paper? Display this on your interactive whiteboard during the lesson.

Editing
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It is a high-resolution vector-based illustration created in graphic design software.
This file cannot be edited in any office software (ex, Word, Powerpoint).However, I discovered that you can use Inkscape, a FREE vector-based program, to open and edit the PDFs included in the download, although you will most likely need to make some adjustments to the file after you do. This will enable you to use vector-based graphics for cleaner anchor charts/posters. Inkscape does NOT retain any gradient shapes/fills that might be present in the file. Inkscape is also free to use ONLINE!

Issues/Corrections
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you spot a typo or other errors contact me immediately for a revision. I try to proofread my own work and have other sets of eyes check it as well, but some things slip through. I can make corrections nearly immediately. Don't hesitate to contact me.

Custom Work
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you need a custom version of this file, please don't hesitate to contact me.
I want you to be happy with your purchase!
