- Describe how different weather occurs due to the constant motion of the atmosphere from the energy of the sun reaching the surface of the Earth.
- Describe the atmosphere as a mixture of gases.
- Describe Cloud formation and how clouds are formed by varying amounts of condensation in the atmosphere and change in temperature differences in the lower atmosphereP.EN.07.43 / P.EN.07.62 / E.ES.07.72 / E.FE.07.11
Today in Class:
- You reviewed and discussed the differences and similarities (compare and contrast) the Weather and Climate.
- You watched a really cool demonstration and then you completed a “I Observe, I Think, I Infer” paper- reporting on this demonstration.
- Next, groups were assigned a cloud type to research.
Your group used the following websites / links to locate the details about your cloud type:
typical shape, precipitation that occurs, elevation, density, size (in comparison to other clouds), appearance, composition (ice crystals, water droplets…)
Your group should have noted this on your Cloud Notes WS and then one person should have written these details on a poster paper.
Homework: Look outside today after school. Do you see any clouds? If so, which types do you see?
