Study Guide for Weather Unit Test
Below is the Study Guide for the Weather Unit Test. Download and save this file in your Science Folder. You should begin working on the study guide on Monday in class after you finished the Station Model Lab. You can use any of your notes or the textbook (in class) to help you fill out the questions & vocabulary. Much of the test will be application not just memorization of definitions. The test will be a combination of multiple choice, short answer, and extended response. There are many diagrams/pictures on the test. The test will be Friday June 7th. If you have questions on any parts be prepared to ask in class Tuesday or Wednesday, or see me in Advisory this week.
Station Models are neat organized diagrams that help to show a lot of weather data about one particular location. Use the ThingLink to help you learn how to create, interpret, and explain data in the Station Models. We will be doing a lab with many examples in class on Friday 5/31.
Air Masses and Fronts
HW 5/29 due 5/30: Read the following article about Air Masses and Fronts. After reading create 5 questions and answers from the article. They can be T/F, Fill-in the blank, or Multiple Choice. Be sure to write the answers as well!! This is a homework check, either you have it when you walk in the door or you don't.
Wind and Global Wind Patterns- Notes
Air Pressure Notes- 5/22
Air Pressure- Lab 5/21 and Homework due 5/22
Today in class we went over the lab from yesterday. Be sure you can explain the kinds of heat transfer that took place and why they might have occurred differently on different surfaces. Then we did the Air Pressure Lab. If you were absent you will need to download and save both files and read over the background parts of the lab. For Homework tonight, all students need to read the Air Pressure Article. Then write 5 questions about the article that you could ask a classmate tomorrow. Write the answers for the questions as well. There is space at the end of the Air Pressure Lab to complete this work. Email if you have questions.
