Bayou View Middle School – Weekly Lesson Plans Teacher: Michelle Lee Class Periods: 3 Week of: August 22, 2016 Subject: 6th Science heat transfer & winds Essential Question: What affects does weather have on the Earth’s surface and climate? Classroom News/Due Dates: HOMEWORK: Article of the Week #3 • 6-8 RST2 and 6-8 RST.4 Standards: 6-8.RST.2 Determine a central idea or conclusions of a text; provide an accurate summary of the text distinct from prior knowledge or opinions. 6-8.RST.3 Follow precisely a multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks. 6-8.RST.4 Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 6-8 texts and topics. Students who demonstrate an understanding can: 1. Collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses results in changes in weather conditions. 2. Develop and use a model to describe how unequal heating and rotation of the Earth cause patterns of atmospheric and oceanic circulation that determine regional climates. 4c PLD-ADV Predict a change in weather based on differences in pressure, heat, air movement, and humidity. 7.4cDescribe the causes and effects of heat transfer as it relates to the circulation of ocean currents, atmospheric movement, and global wind patterns (e.g., trade winds, the jet stream). Provide examples of how these global patterns can affect local weather: c. Effects of heat transfer to the movement of air masses, high and low pressure areas, and fronts in the atmosphere 8.4c Examine weather forecasting and describe how meteorologists use atmospheric features and technology to predict the weather. a. Temperature, precipitation, wind (speed/direction), dew point, relative humidity, and barometric pressure b. How the thermal energy transferred to the air results in vertical and horizontal movement of air masses, Coriolis effect c. Global wind patterns (e.g., trade winds, westerlies, jet streams)elements of study. Day/Date Bell Schedule Bell Work Monday 8-22-16 Regular Schedule DCA Testing Objectives (“The student will…”) Students will demonstrate prior knowledge on District Common Assessment. Procedures TI = Teacher Input, M = Modeling, GP = Guided Practice, IP = Independent Practice TTW = “The teacher will…” TSW = “The students will…” ANTICIPATORY SET: Directions for test and video clip DCA Testing Assessment Observation, Activotes Project, Quiz, Unit Test, DCA, etc. Closure Students will be formally assessed through DCA Students will read if they finish early. Tuesday 8-23-16 Regular Schedule DCA Testing Students will demonstrate prior knowledge on District Common Assessment. Wednesday 8-24-16 Regular Schedule Students will read the procedure of the activity and set up lab report. 8-25-16 Why is Earth’s atmosphere so warm? The students will use a campus map and bubbles to generate a map of air currents flowing around the exterior of the building. 8-26-16 Regular Schedule DCA Testing Students will read Article of the Week #3 when they finish the test. The student will be able to describe how energy transfer by radiation. The student can observe convection, as well as illustrate it and explain why it occurs. Students will predict which substance (sand or water) will The student can identify the global wind patterns Students will be formally assessed through DCA Students will read if they finish early. Teacher observations and questions throughout activity and lab report. When your bubbles reached a corner of the building what changes in movement did you see with the bubbles? Students will be assessed by questions and answers. How does energy travel in the atmosphere? Class discussion and Socratic questions in lab Why is it hotter at the equator? Why is it directions for lab Inquiry Activity: Blowing in the wind Students will map the air flow around the school using bubbles. • RST.3 RST.3 Friday ANTICIPATORY SET: Thursday Regular Schedule ANTICIPATORY SET: Directions for test and video clip ANTICIPATORY SET : Nasa Video-Radiation http://www.neok12.com/video/Radioactivity/zX414d5a587676487071567 3.htm Each group will conduct a demonstration demonstrating heat transfer and create a class poster about their demonstration they will present their findings to the class. Students will conduct an experiment using light radiation on black and silver cans. Ice placed in hot water Warm water placed in cold water Convection in air Homework: Article of the week due Friday ANTICIPATORY SET: Students will be introduced to the crime. The class will conduct an experiment demonstrating how the heat from the sun hits the earth at different angles and causes temperature changes. heat up quicker, while under a heat source, and lose the most heat after a heat source is removed. and why we have different global wind patterns. The students will construct a diagram of global winds The class will conduct an experiment demonstrating the heat capacity of sand to water. Students will draw conclusions and relate to local wind patterns Students will illustrate sea and land breezes and explain how convection cycle in each illustration Homework: Article of the week due Friday colder at the poles?
