Transcript Unit 14_Weather and Climate Day 3_5_7

Good morning!
BELL Work (5 min.)
Set up today’s page 94. We only have “In”
and “OUT” today
Under the IN on the top of page 94, Copy the
questions below to answer during a short video.
1. How is the temperature of air in a weather
system related to its pressure?
2. How do pilots use the “jet stream”?
3. Why can’t winds move directly north or south?
4. Where did the term weather “front” come from?
Why is it important to keep track of them?
Get SAME laptop # as yesterday from cart in back.
Don’t open up yet.
OBJECTIVES & LEARNING GOALS:
METEOROLOGISTS CAN:
• Use the web to explore different factors that
influence weather such as wind, jet streams, and
ocean currents.
• Describe and illustrate how weather fronts work.
Level 4 I can evaluate how weather models use current atmospheric
conditions to predict the weather and analyze climate data to take a
stance on the possibility of climate change.
Level 3 I can describe how global patterns such as the jet stream and ocean
currents influence local weather AND clearly differentiate between
weather and climate.
Level 2 I can describe how ocean currents and winds move around the Earth,
list factors that influence weather formation, and summarize
examples of weather and climate data.
Level 1 With help I can explain some factors that influence weather and the
difference between weather and climate.

“IN”
questions
1. How is the temperature of air related to its
Warm air creates an area of low pressure
pressure?
and cool air creates an area of high pressure.
2. How do pilots use the “jet stream”?
They can use it to fly faster when travelling east.
3. Why can’t winds move directly north or south?
Earth’s rotation causes the winds to shift to the
west in what is known as the “Coriolis effect”.
4. Where did the term weather “front” come from?
Why is it important to keep track of them?
It came from the idea of a battlefront during war.
Fronts help us predict future weather.
Continuing Webquest
• Complete the questions from Day 1. Take
your time and write neatly. There is no
reason to rush.
• Work on Day 2 questions. Make sure
answers are complete and drawings are
clear enough to read.
• 1st,2nd, and 3rd periods: Remember to take
home your study guide! Unit test on
Tuesday
OUT – BOTTOM OF PAGE 94
**Make sure your laptop is put away.*
Answer the question below in your
notebook.
Write down 2 specific things you learned
about weather.
Jetstreams?
Level 4
I can evaluate how weather models
use current atmospheric conditions to
predict the weather and analyze
climate data to take a stance on the
possibility of climate change.
Level 3
I can describe how global
patterns such as the jet stream
and ocean currents influence
local weather AND clearly
differentiate between weather
and climate.
Level 2
•I can describe how ocean
currents and winds move
around the Earth, list factors
that influence weather
formation, and summarize
examples of weather and
climate data.
Level 1
With help I can explain some
factors that influence weather
and the difference between
weather and climate.
