Today in Class:
- You took the Energy Efficiency and Sustainability Quiz. I hope you did well.
- Next, you started your Cloud Diagrams. Most students referred to the textbook, pages 124-125, some students chose to reference a cloud diagram from the internet. Make sure that your diagram has 10+ cloud types and their labels; shade in clouds that are darker- storm clouds; if a cloud has precipitation associated with it, then draw some rain or snow; don’t forget Fog; draw/label an altitude y-axis with numbers and correct metric units; try to draw shapes of clouds– (flat, puffy, tall, wispy)-don’t worry about perfection. It is a science drawing, so accuracy is more important.
Homework: Complete the cloud diagram. Look above for the detailed instructions. Here are some sample websites for you to check out:
