  • Life Science
    • Organisms and environments
      • An organism's patterns of behavior are related to the nature of that organism's environment, including the kinds and numbers of other organisms present, the availability of food and resources, and the physical characteristics of the environment.
  • Earth Science
    • Properties of earth materials
      • Earth materials are solid rocks and soils, water, and the gases of the atmosphere.
    • Structure of the earth system
      • Clouds, formed by the condensation of water vapor, affect weather and climate. (5-8)
      • Oceans have a major effect on climate, because water in the oceans holds a large amount of heat. (5-8)
    • Energy in the earth system
      • Global climate is determined by energy transfer from the sun at and near the earth's surface. (9-12)
  • History and Nature of Science
    • Nature of science
      • Scientists formulate and test their explanations of nature using observation, experiments, and theoretical and mathematical models. Those ideas are not likely to change greatly in the future. (5-8)
  • Process Standards for Professional Development
    • Design
      • Introduce teachers to scientific literature, media, and technological resources that expand their science knowledge and their ability to access further knowledge. (NSES)
    • Learning
      • Build on the teacher's current science understanding, ability, and attitudes. (NSES)

Review of An Introduction to Earth's Climate
  Ronaldo Relador (Bowie, MD) on February 29, 2012
  Great lesson for earth and environmental science classes.

Climate Basics
  Arlene Jurewicz Leighton on September 14, 2011
  This web seminar included the difference between climate and weather including regional and global climate. Included what controls climate including the Albedo effect. Several activities to do with your students were shown.
