Teacher / Team Name: Mr. Swope
Curriculum:
Topic:
Unit 2: Meteorology
Days: 30
Subject(s): Science
Know:
S11.A.3.3.3 -- Essential
Analyze physical
patterns of motion to
make predictions or
draw conclusions (e.g., ,
weather systems, ).
S11.D.2.1.1 -- Important
Describe how changes in
concentration of minor
components (e.g., O2,
CO2, ozone, dust,
pollution) in Earth's
atmosphere are linked to
climate change.
S11.D.2.1.2 -- Important
Compare the
transmission, reflection,
absorption, and radiation
of solar energy to and by
the Earth's surface under
different environmental
conditions (e.g., major
volcanic eruptions,
greenhouse effect,
reduction of ozone layer;
increased global cloud
cover)
Grade(s): 9th
Understand:
Weather is the state of
the atmosphere at a
particular place for a
short period of time.
Climate is a general
weather condition over a
long period of time. The
major components of
weather and claimate are
air temperature,
humidity, cloudiness,
precipitation, air
pressure, and wind.
Do:
S11.D.2.1.3 -- Essential
Explain weather patterns and seasonal changes using
the concepts of heat and density.
S11.D.2.1.4 -- Essential
Analyze weather maps and weather data (e.g., air
masses, fronts, temperature, air pressure, wind speed,
wind direction, precipitation) to predict regional or
global weather events.
3.3.10.A5.b -- Essential
WATER - Explain the processes of the hydrologic
cycle.
3.3.10.A6.a -- Essential
WEATHER AND CLIMATE - Interpret
meteorological data to describe and/or predict weather.
3.3.10.A7.d -- Important
UNIFYING THEMES - CONSTANCY/CHANGE
Describe factors that contribute to global climate
change.
S11.D.2.1.3 -- Essential
Explain weather patterns
and seasonal changes
using the concepts of
heat and density.
S11.D.2.1.4 -- Essential
Analyze weather maps
and weather data (e.g.,
air masses, fronts,
temperature, air
pressure, wind speed,
wind direction,
precipitation) to predict
regional or global
weather events.
