Loaded with COLOR images. Note: includes a BONUS college preparatory or advanced enrichment incorporating higher-level math skills including equation applications. This activity includes an analysis of a fictional continent and assesses students with a variety of depth of knowledge hierarchy questioning strategies.
Great feedback from professional meteorologists.
-Colored organizer differentiating between why temperature values are different in different cities (close by and far away). Over 12 different variables are addressed. The organizer matches definition description, and applicable image. Variables include:
-Land versus Water
-Air Masses and Wind Direction
-Time of Day
-Urban Versus Rural
-Various Weather Conditions (Humidity, Dewpoint, Cloudiness, Precipiation, etc.)
-Students can evaluate and/or BUILD a fictional continent. This fictional continent consists of 6 cities with similar and different characteristics. Students then arrange each city from warmest to coolest then assigning temperature terminology, and the dominant variables responsible for the possible temperature.
Very special cut and paste, Smartboard, or Velcro and laminate activity that challenges many learners based on how the information is presented. The instructor decides the difficulty! This has been used on science days with high marks and acclaim.
This works well for any level but is GREAT for special education students or college prep learners that need an alternative assessment and may not be great at traditional activities/labs/assessments.
Also, perfect for homeschooling!
WIDE RANGE OF ABILITY LEVELS!
This has been used as a pre-class, lab/activity, study guide, review, and assessment. This is an effective teaching tool one on one, in small groups, and as a class when using a Smart Board/Promethean Board/Projection.
A guaranteed hit all around!
A great addition to your meteorology teaching library.
Within the classroom, this activity was consistently very successful and acclaimed by students in grades 6th – 12th within multiple schools - public, private, and charter schools in a multitude of states. This work has also been shared at workshops, in-services, and conferences.
