  2. 2. Weather • National Geographic Video: Weather 101 • http://www.worldweatherpost.com/2009/05/ 27/national-geographic-video-weather-101/
  3. 3. What are different seasons the sky produces, what are the characteristics, and how do they affect us?
  4. 4. How is rain, temperature, and wind speed affected on a weekly bases, how often does it change, and why? •Winter •Spring •Fall •Summer •Degrees F •mL
  5. 5. How does all of this information fit together, how could it change over the future, and finally what are your new thoughts in regards to the sky?

  7. 7. TEKS • (21) Writing/inquiry/research. The student uses writing as a tool for learning and research. The student is expected to: – (A) frame questions to direct resarch (4-8); – (B) organize prior knowledge about a topic in a variety of ways such as by producing a graphic organizer (4-8); – (C) take notes from relevent and authoritative sources such as guest speakers, periodicals, and on-line searches (4-8); • (2) Scientific processes. THe student uses inquiry methods during fields and labaoratoryinvestigations. the student is expected to: – (A) plan and implement descriptive investigations including asking well- defined questions, formulating testable hypotheses, and selecting and using equipment and technology; – (B) collect information by observing and measuring; – (C) analyze and interpret information to construct reasonable explanations from direct and indirect evidense;
  8. 8. TEKS • (4.3) Number, operation, and quantitative reasoning. The students adds and subtracts to solve meaningful problems involving whole numbers and decimals. The student is expected to: – (A) use addition and subtraction to solve problems involving whole numbers; and – (B) add and subtract decimals to the hundredths place using concrete objects and pictorial models. • (4.4) Number, operation, and quantitative reasoning. The student multiplies and divides to solve meaningful problems involving whole numbers. The student is expected to: – (A) model factors and products using arrays and area models; – (B) represent multiplication an division situations in picture, word, and number form; – (C) recall and apply multiplication facts through 12X12; – (D) use multiplication to solve problems (no more than two digits without technology); and – (E) use division to solve problems (no more than one digit divisors and three digit dividends without technology). • (3) Scientific processes. The student uses critical thinking and scientific problem solving to make informed decisions. The student is expected to: – (A) analyze, review, and critique scientific explanations, including hypotheses and theories, as to thier strengths and weaknesses using scientific evidence and information; – (B) draw inferences based on information related to promotional materials for products and services; – (C) represent the natural world using models and identify thie limitations;
  9. 9. TEKS • (15) Writing/purposes. The student writes for a variety of audiences and purposes, and in a variety of forms. The student is expected to: – (A) write to express, discover, record, develop, reflect on ideas, and to problem solve (4-8); – (C) write to inform such as to explain, describe, report, and narrate (4-8); • (4.14) Underlying processes and mathematical tools. The student applies Grade 4 mathematics to solve problems conneted to everyday experiences and activities in and outside of school. the student is expected to: – (A) identify the mathematics in everyday situations; – (B) solve problems that incorporate understanding the problem, making a plan, carrying out the plan, and evaluating the solution for reasonableness; – (C) select or develop an appropriate problem-solving plan or strategy, including drawing a picture, looking for a pattern, systematic guessing and checking, acting it out, making a table, working a simpler problem, or working backwards to solve a problem; and – (D) use tools such as real objects, manipulatives, and technology to solve problems
