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
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
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.
