The uneven heating of the Earth is due to several factors that will be explored in this unit. Students will make a model to show their understanding of the uneven heating of Earth's surface and how this influences weather and climate. Students will love these engaging activities.

This HUGE Complete Resource is designed to meet the Utah SEEd

Standard 6.3.3 Develop and use a model to show how unequal heating of the Earth’s systems causes patterns of atmospheric and oceanic circulation that determine regional climates. Emphasize how warm water and air move from the equator toward the poles.

This unit addresses the disciplinary core idea from Earth's systems in the Utah Core for 6th grade. See uneven heating of the Earth's surface on my blog for more ideas about this topic.

There are over 100 slides and pages in this unit!
This resource has four slide shows:

1.Atmosphere – direct information about the makeup of Earth’s atmosphere

2.Fair Tests-Information on how to design an investigation and include dependent and independent variables.

3.Climate- Information on climate and what factors affect climate with rich diagrams and illustrations of scientific concepts

4. Heat Transfer in Climate-How Heat transfer principles help move solar energy in our weather systems

It also includes:

  • three pages of informational text
  • comprehension questions
  • hands-on labs
  • response pages
  • interactive notebook flaps
  • worksheets
  • answer keys
  • a quiz
