Download or upload the map picture and open with a paint
program or use Scribblemaps.com or Scriblink.com
Electronically color your picture by PREDICTING what the current
temperatures are for the entire map or a specific region. Use the color
chart below.
Timed Pair Share
What background knowledge did you use to
decide how to color your map?
Vocabulary you may have heard:
• Northern/Southern Hemispheres
•Equator
•Tropics
•Coastal Areas
•Mountain Region
•Oceans
•Trade Winds
•Elevation
•Forrest/Vegetation
1. Teacher announces
topic, states how long
each student will share,
and provides think time.
2. In pairs, Partner A
shares; Partner B
LISTENS
3. Partner B responds with
a positive gambit.
4. Partners switch Roles
*Can be used as pre or post type formative assessment

Competency Goal 2:
The learner will conduct investigations and use appropriate tools to build an understanding of the changes in weather.
 2.01 Investigate and describe how moving air interacts with objects.
 2.02 Observe the force of air pressure pushing on objects.
 2.03 Describe weather using quantitative measures of:




Temperature.
Wind direction.
Wind speed.
Precipitation.
 2.04 Identify and use common tools to measure weather:
 Wind vane and anemometer.
 Thermometer.
 Rain gauge.
 2.05 Discuss and determine how energy from the sun warms the land,
air and water.
 2.06 Observe and record weather changes over time and relate to time
of day and time of year.
Grade 5
Competency Goal 3: The learner will conduct investigations and use appropriate technology to
build an understanding of weather and climate.
3.01 Investigate the water cycle including the processes of:




Evaporation.
Condensation.
Precipitation.
Run-off.
3.02 Discuss and determine how the following are affected by predictable patterns of
weather:





Temperature.
Wind direction and speed.
Precipitation.
Cloud cover.
Air pressure.
3.03 Describe and analyze the formation of various types of clouds and discuss their relation
to weather systems.
3.04 Explain how global atmospheric movement patterns affect local weather.
3.05 Compile and use weather data to establish a climate record and reveal any trends.
3.06 Discuss and determine the influence of geography on weather and climate:



Mountains
Sea breezes
Water bodies.
Grade 7
The learner will conduct investigations and utilize appropriate technologies and information systems to build an
understanding of the atmosphere
3.05 Examine evidence that atmospheric properties can be studied to
predict atmospheric conditions and weather hazards:




Communicating information about conditions.
Anemometer
measures wind speed

oj2/en/docs/anemometer.shtml
Rain Collector / Rain Gauge
Collects and records the amount of rainfall. The ISS uses
a “tipping spoon” inside that fills, dumps, and records
the water amount automatically.
Solar Panel
A collection of solar cells that directly converts the
energy in light into electrical energy through the
process of photovoltaics.
Radiation Shield
 Protects your External Temperature Sensor or External
Temperature/Humidity Sensor from solar radiation
and other sources of radiated and reflected heat.
(Increases accuracy of the readings and life of the
sensor)
Wind Vane
Measures the direction of the wind
