Intended Learning Outcomes:
Introduce the lesson by asking students question such as:
What is the weather forecast for today?
2. Show clip on weather disaster. Talk about instances where knowing the weather beforehand has been helpful in the students' lives.
3. Use Internet maps or daily weather maps to teach students how to do general predictions. Hand out 'Today's Weather' sheet (see link below). Have students use instruments to get local conditions.
Have students do Day 6 on their own at home. (They will have to guess at actual temperatures and wind speed.)
Once students have collected weather data for six days, instruct them to graph, analyze, and interpret their data. Instruct them to look for trends and draw inferences.
Research how new technologies have changed scientists' understanding of atmospheric systems. Describe how technological advances in meteorology have improved the quality of life.
