  • 1. Weather Station 101 <br />Craven County Schools<br />Technology Center<br />2300 Old Cherry Pt Road<br />New Bern, NC 28560<br />252.514.6393<br />
  • 2.<br />Download or uploadthe map picture and open with a paint program or use or<br />Electronically color your picture by PREDICTING what the current temperatures are for the entire map or a specific region. Use the color chart below.<br />
  • 3. Timed Pair Share<br />What background knowledge did you use to decide how to color your map?<br />Vocabulary you may have heard:<br /><ul><li> Northern/Southern Hemispheres
  • 4. Equator
  • 5. Tropics
  • 6. Coastal Areas
  • 7. Mountain Region
  • 8. Oceans
  • 9. Trade Winds
  • 10. Elevation
  • 11. Forrest/Vegetation</li></ul>Teacher announces topic, states how long each student will share, and provides think time.<br />In pairs, Partner A shares; Partner B LISTENS<br />Partner B responds with a positive gambit.<br />Partners switch Roles<br />*Can be used as pre or post type formative assessment <br />
  • 12. Global<br />Use the Map Feature from DAVIS or the NOAA links. <br />or<br />
  • 13. Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS)<br />Anemometer wind cups<br />Rain Collector with debris screen<br />Solar Panel <br />Wind Vane<br />Radiation shield<br />
  • 14. Grade 2Competency Goal 2: The learner will conduct investigations and use appropriate tools to build an understanding of the changes in weather.<br />2.01 Investigate and describe how moving air interacts with objects.<br />2.02 Observe the force of air pressure pushing on objects.<br />2.03 Describe weather using quantitative measures of:<br />Temperature.<br />Wind direction.<br />Wind speed.<br />Precipitation.<br />2.04 Identify and use common tools to measure weather:<br />Wind vane and anemometer.<br />Thermometer.<br />Rain gauge.<br />2.05 Discuss and determine how energy from the sun warms the land, air and water.<br />2.06 Observe and record weather changes over time and relate to time of day and time of year.<br />
  • 15. Grade 5Competency Goal 3: The learner will conduct investigations and use appropriate technology to build an understanding of weather and climate.<br />3.01 Investigate the water cycle including the processes of:<br />Evaporation.<br />Condensation.<br />Precipitation.<br />Run-off.<br />3.02 Discuss and determine how the following are affected by predictable patterns of weather:<br />Temperature.<br />Wind direction and speed.<br />Precipitation.<br />Cloud cover.<br />Air pressure.<br />3.03 Describe and analyze the formation of various types of clouds and discuss their relation to weather systems.<br />3.04 Explain how global atmospheric movement patterns affect local weather.<br />3.05 Compile and use weather data to establish a climate record and reveal any trends.<br />3.06 Discuss and determine the influence of geography on weather and climate:<br />Mountains<br />Sea breezes<br />Water bodies.<br />
  • 16. Grade 7The learner will conduct investigations and utilize appropriate technologies and information systems to build an understanding of the atmosphere<br />3.05 Examine evidence that atmospheric properties can be studied to predict atmospheric conditions and weather hazards:<br />Humidity.<br />Temperature.<br />Wind speed and direction.<br />Air pressure.<br />Precipitation.<br />Tornados.<br />Hurricanes.<br />Floods.<br />Storms.<br />3.06 Assess the use of technology in studying atmospheric phenomena and weather hazards:<br />Satellites.<br />Weather maps.<br />Predicting.<br />Recording.<br />Communicating information about conditions.<br />
  • 17. Anemometer<br />measures wind speed<br /><br />
  • 18. Rain Collector / Rain Gauge<br />Collects and records the amount of rainfall. The ISS uses a “tipping spoon” inside that fills, dumps, and records the water amount automatically.<br />
  • 19. Solar Panel<br /> A collection of solar cells that directly converts the energy in light into electrical energy through the process of photovoltaics. <br />
  • 20. Radiation Shield<br />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)<br />
  • 21. Wind Vane<br />Measures the direction of the wind<br />
