Now-you-see-it, now-you-don't! This is a good experiment for students to try themselves, watching a cloud appear and disappear before their own eyes, as they change pressure and temperature.
This product is in Microsoft Word .doc form so that Ts can customize the discussion to fit the needs of their Ss.
This Content Enhancement Routine is classroom tested to help students with the following Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in Science:
- SC.5.E.7.6 Describe characteristics (temperature and precipitation) of different climate zones as they relate to latitude, elevation, and proximity to bodies of water.
- SC.6.E.7.2 Investigate and apply how the cycling of water between the atmosphere and hydrosphere has an effect on weather patterns and climate.
- SC.6.E.7.4 Differentiate and show interactions among the geosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere.
- SC.912.E.7.1 Analyze the movement of matter and energy through the different biogeochemical cycles, including water and carbon.
- SC.912.E.7.3 Differentiate and describe the various interactions among Earth systems, including: atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, geosphere, and biosphere.
- SC.912.E.7.4 Summarize the conditions that contribute to the climate of a geographic area, including the relationships to lakes and oceans.
- SC.912.E.7.5 Predict future weather conditions based on present observations and conceptual models and recognize limitations and uncertainties of such predictions.
