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 />
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 />
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 />
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 />
Solar Panel<br /> A collection of solar cells that directly converts the energy in light into electrical energy through the process of photovoltaics. <br />
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 />
Wind Vane<br />Measures the direction of the wind<br />
