Students evaluate the effectiveness of a model to represent global ocean and wind currents. Students combine information they gain from videos, demonstrations, and articles in order to find evidence to support their claim.
Students use models to track the Sun's energy can take as it leaves the sun and travels through Earth's systems. Students explore with different types of surfaces, globes, flashlights, and an interactive model of the Greenhouse Effect!
Students will examine warm air rising and cold air sinking through an investigation to recognize different temperatures cause convection currents and global wind patterns to form and impact weather in an area.
