Quilt piece due Friday. Rubric is still on Atmosphere TOC 8 in your journal.
Watch the weather forecast and see how much you understand!
Quilt pieces are due next Friday 11/4. Watch the weather forecast and see how much you understand already!
Tomorrow in class we will work on our severe weather quilt piece. (The rubric for the quilt piece and severe weather project is taped to Atmosphere TOC 8 in your science journal.) If you want to bring in any small special art material for the project to work with in class, you may.
Start trying to watch the weather forecast daily, and see how much you now understand!
Review Atmosphere topics. Quiz tomorrow. Most of the answers are on the quiz itself in tables and diagrams.
Review Atmosphere topics, especially the Chapter 4 section 1 Cornell notes we completed some time back. Anything left from the Air Pressure Activity should be completed on your own time. Quiz Thursday. Today students received the severe weather project rubric and instructions.
Students should continue to review their atmosphere unit notes, models, and foldable for a few minutes each night. There will be a quiz Thursday on reading graphs and data tables related to the atmosphere unit.
Students should be reviewing their water cycle, cloud types, forms of precipitation, and air masses (names and characteristics). We are moving on into air pressure and its impact on the weather.
Students should be reviewing the cloud types and now air masses and fronts that we are reading and writing about in class. Please use the illustration of the 10 clouds we created (on the back of the water cycle model) for the 10 major cloud types to be included in your water cycle foldable.
Questions to be answered on your foldable:
Tab #1 How do clouds form? (Include ALL of the conditions you need for condensation
What conditions in the atmosphere create the different clouds?
What conditions create the different forms of precipitation?
Tab #2-6 draw the cloud
is it a high, middle, or low cloud
describe what it looks like
does it produce precipitation; what kind; how much
is the cloud made mostly of liquid or ice
The foldable will be checked for a classwork grade on Friday end of class.
Continue to review layers of the atmosphere. (See yesterday's post.) Quiz Thursday. If you did not make good progress on your water cycle model, you may want to add to it tonight. We will not spend more than 15 more minutes in class on it.
