  1. In this activity set, students first collect weather data and use web resources to understand the factors that contribute to weather conditions. Then, students analyze data from weather maps to identify patterns and understand how atmospheric conditions contribute to weather. Students use their map
  2. In this activity set, students analyze and interpret data in the form of weather maps to draw conclusions about the causes of large-scale severe weather events. Students discover how the movement of air masses can result in weather fronts that affect large geographic areas and cause severe thunders
  3. In this activity set, students evaluate their current understanding of the factors that impact the development of thunderstorms, use a simulation to investigate the factors that contribute to the development of severe weather, and synthesize prior understanding and new learning to develop a model th
  4. In this activity set, students investigate the factors that contribute to the development of tornadoes. They apply their understanding of the water cycle, weather, and climate factors to tornadogenesis. Emphasis is on developing and using models (SEP) and the movement of energy and matter (CCC).This
  5. In this activity/assessment, students apply their understanding of weather, air masses, thunderstorms and tornadoes to evaluate clues to explain a phenomenon (a severe storm in Arizona in 2019). Students carry out an investigation by collecting data from the clues provided and then develop and commu
Bundle Description

These activities are part of the longer, NGSS-aligned unit - Organisms and Their Environments - which addresses several NGSS standards. However, the activities in THIS bundle focus on weather -- the movement of air masses, weather fronts, the development of thunderstorms, tornadoes and severe weather. Students engage in Science and Engineering Practices like Analyzing and Interpreting Data (from weather maps), Developing and Using Models (to explain severe weather), and Planning and Carrying Out An Investigation (by solving a science mystery - The Case of the Desert Tornado).

Students would benefit from familiarity with the water cycle and the factors that influence climate, although this information could be provided by the teacher to supplement any missing prior knowledge.
