Description

Grades 6-10. Understanding Weather and Climate explores the atmospheric events and oceanic processes that dramatically impact the earth and its inhabitants. Students experiment with factors that determine storms and daily weather, explore the impact of oceans on the earth, and examine the influences that produce climate zones and climate changes. Throughout the unit, students make predictions, collect data to test hypotheses, and draw conclusions based on evidence.

Benefits of using this kit:

  • Conceptual sequence helps students retain and apply knowledge and experience to problem-solving strategies in new contexts
  • Hands-on activities are often completed with lower levels of student disruptions, which allow teachers to summarize the results and meaning of the activities
  • Supports STEM and Common Core initiatives as students work to develop 21st-century skills in science, math, technology, and engineering to prepare for careers in the global marketplace.
  • Fosters a positive attitude toward science

STC-Secondary™ is a 16-unit, inquiry-centered middle school science curriculum developed by the Smithsonian Science Education Center (SSEC). Each STC-Secondary™ unit provides opportunities for students to experience scientific phenomena firsthand. A comprehensive, research-based curriculum, STC-Secondary™ is aligned with the National Science Education Standards.

Each lesson in Understanding Weather and Climate builds on skills and concepts presented in previous lessons. The unit begins with an assessment of students' current understanding of the topic and ends with performance-based and written assessments. As students progress through the module, they take greater responsibility for their own learning, eventually planning and conducting their own procedures, devising their own data tables, and analyzing the results they obtain.
