    Description

    Weather and climate are complicated topics. Everything you need to teach the Middle School NGSS Earth's Systems pertaining to weather and climate is in this bundle. Purchase as a bundle and save 20% on these weather and climate resources for middle school science. Completely coverage of these standards From the Disciplinary Core Ideas: Earth's Systems: ESS2.D Weather and Climate for NGSS Middle School.

    This bundle includes the following units:

    Air Masses, Air Pressure, and Weather Fronts

    Climate and the Uneven Heating of the Earth's Surface

    Global Warning

    Transpiration and Evaporation

    Water Cycle in a Jar

    This huge bundle of resources for NGSS Middle School Science Addresses a variety of standards. Students will learn about air pressure, air masses, weather fronts, uneven heating of the Earth's surface, climate, the water cycle, and more.

    Standards Addressed:

    NGSS MS-ESS2-1. Develop a model to describe the cycling of Earth’s materials and the flow of energy that drives this process

    NGSS 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.

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

    NGSS MS ESS2-6  Develop and use a model to describe how unequal heating and rotation of the Earth cause patterns. This is from the Earth"s Systems strand.

    NGSS MS-ESS3-5. Ask questions to clarify evidence of the factors that have caused the rise in global temperatures over the past century.

    These NGSS science resources are standards-based and include slideshows, nonfiction passages, comprehension pages, worksheets, lab pages, interactive notebook inserts, lesson plans, and more. The labs use simple, easy-to-find household materials that are inexpensive. This resource is aligned with the NGSS standards for Middle school science and uses phenomena to engage the students in critical thinking.

    Science Concepts Addressed Include:

    Water cycle

    Transpiration

    Air pressure

    Air masses

    Weather fronts

    Uneven heating of Earth’s surfaces

    Climate

    Greenhouse Effect

    Global Warming

    Climate Change

    Students will use the following NGSS science and engineering practices:

    • Asking Questions and Defining Problems. ...
    • Developing and Using Models. ...
    • Planning and Carrying Out Investigations. ...
    • Analyzing and Interpreting Data. ...
    • Using Mathematics and Computational Thinking. ...

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    NGSSMS-ESS2-5
    Collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses result in changes in weather conditions. Emphasis is on how air masses flow from regions of high pressure to low pressure, causing weather (defined by temperature, pressure, humidity, precipitation, and wind) at a fixed location to change over time, and how sudden changes in weather can result when different air masses collide. Emphasis is on how weather can be predicted within probabilistic ranges. Examples of data can be provided to students (such as weather maps, diagrams, and visualizations) or obtained through laboratory experiments (such as with condensation). Assessment does not include recalling the names of cloud types or weather symbols used on weather maps or the reported diagrams from weather stations.
    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.
    NGSSMS-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. Emphasis is on the ways water changes its state as it moves through the multiple pathways of the hydrologic cycle. Examples of models can be conceptual or physical. A quantitative understanding of the latent heats of vaporization and fusion is not assessed.
    NGSSMS-ESS2-1
    Develop a model to describe the cycling of Earth’s materials and the flow of energy that drives this process. Emphasis is on the processes of melting, crystallization, weathering, deformation, and sedimentation, which act together to form minerals and rocks through the cycling of Earth’s materials. Assessment does not include the identification and naming of minerals.
    NGSSMS-ESS3-5
    Ask questions to clarify evidence of the factors that have caused the rise in global temperatures over the past century. Examples of factors include human activities (such as fossil fuel combustion, cement production, and agricultural activity) and natural processes (such as changes in incoming solar radiation or volcanic activity). Examples of evidence can include tables, graphs, and maps of global and regional temperatures, atmospheric levels of gases such as carbon dioxide and methane, and the rates of human activities. Emphasis is on the major role that human activities play in causing the rise in global temperatures.
