This pack contains materials related to the following standards for an interactive notebook:
• Temperature is the measure of the amount of thermal energy in the atmosphere.
• Air pressure is due to the weight of the air and is determined by several factors including the temperature of the air.
• A front is the boundary between air masses of different temperature and humidity.
• Cirrus, stratus, cumulus, and cumulo-nimbus clouds are associated with certain weather conditions.
• Cumulus clouds are fluffy and white with flat bottoms. They usually indicate fair weather. However, when they get larger and darker on the bottom, they become cumulo-nimbus clouds. Cumulo-nimbus clouds may produce thunderstorms.
• Stratus clouds are smooth, gray clouds that cover the whole sky (block out direct sunlight). Light rain and drizzle are usually associated with stratus clouds.
• Cirrus clouds are feathery clouds. They are associated with fair weather. Cirrus clouds often indicate that rain or snow will fall within several hours.
• Extreme atmospheric conditions create various kinds of storms such as thunderstorms, hurricanes, and tornadoes.
• Different atmospheric conditions create different types of precipitation.
• Meteorologists gather data by using a variety of instruments.
• Meteorologists use data to predict weather patterns.
• A barometer measures air pressure.
• An anemometer measures wind speed.
• A rain gauge measures the amount of precipitation.
• A thermometer measures the temperature of the air.
