Big Idea:This is a busy lesson! In this introductory lesson, students identify thermometers as the instruments used to measure temperatures, examine kinetic energy as a function of molecular movement, and then examine the differences between weather and climate
Big Idea:This lesson incorporates some videos, in addition to an image used in their Earth Science Reference tables, to have them analyze the major wind belts that form as a result of the uneven heating of the Earth and the Coriolis Effect
Big Idea:Looking for a fun way to helps students understand how engineers use potential and kinetic energy transfers? This lesson simulates a roller coaster and helps students understand the physics behind the fun.
