PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A colorful, fun, and information-packed graphic organizer about sea breezes and land breezes you can use to help your students understand exactly how sea breezes and land breezes work. Surprisingly, sea breezes and land breezes aren't difficult to understand with a simple explanation, which this lesson provides.

The step-by-step PowerPoint will lead you and your students through this graphic organizer about sea breezes and land breezes. Students begin with a blank sheet of copy paper and first draw a landmass. Next, they'll put a body of water next to it. After drawing a fun little stick person on the beach, it's time to draw the last key ingredient of seabreezes and landbreezes- the sun! Once that's in place, everything starts to happen- the land heats up quicker than water during the day, and that uneven heating causes convection over the land, which leads to air moving in from over the water which we call- bingo- sea breezes!

At night the reverse happens, as the water is now warmer than the land, so the air over the water now rises, and we get- ta-da- land breezes!

As with all other PowerPoints, feel free to change any text you wish so that it's more user-friendly for you.
