This product is a color-by-number activity that allows students to answer various questions relating to weather, specifically air fronts and air pressure. And YES- even secondary students love to color!
There are 12 different statements and students must determine if they are true or false. Each answer choice corresponds to a different color. If all of the correct answer choices are chosen, then their final picture will be colored correctly to reflect complete mastery of the content. Two differentiated versions of the student handout are provided - one has a visual of global wind patterns for students to refer to, while the other does not contain the image.
Terms/concepts students need to know in order to be successful with this product are:
•tropical easterlies, prevailing westerlies, polar easterlies
•cold fronts (and associated weather)
•warm fronts (and associated weather)
•stationary fronts (and associated weather)
•occluded fronts (and associated weather)
•that pressure differences cause winds (air moves from high to low pressure)
This could be used as a quick assessment, a homework assignment, additional practice, extra credit, or for early finishers. These are also great for days when you have to be out of the classroom - a sub can easily take over this lesson!
