5E Lesson on Weather and Climate

Hello!

My name is Morgan Baumbach and I am a pre-service teacher studying at Penn State. I am currently working on a lesson (in 5E format) about weather and climate. I have been utilizing the SciPack titled "Ocean's Effect on Weather and Climate", which offers a lot of great information. I would love for guidance relating to activities that can be used in my lesson as well as any further advice regarding teaching this lesson in a classroom setting. 

Thank you!

Hello Morgan,

I glad you are using the 5E model. During my weather unit for the engage stage I like to show my students real tv forecasts and analize the information shared by meteorologists.  For the explain stage, I let my students put together their own severe weather forecast. Groups of 4 students: anchor, field meteorologist, studio meteorologist and community field reporter. Eeach of them will play and demosntrate what they have learned. Hope this helps.

Mr. Garcia,

Thank you so much for your insight! I am excited to utilize your ideas in a lesson plan of my own!

Mr. Garcia,

I recently did a 5E lesson plan over weather, specifially with the different clouds. I will be using your idea next time in incoorporating the tv forecasts. Children today probably don't actaully watch the weather like they use to. I think that it is a great idea! 

 

Thank you!
