Reflection: Routines and Procedures Calculating Humidity - Section 3: Calculating Dewpoint & Humidity


For those who have seen many of my lessons that I've posted on the site, you may have become aware that I really enjoy brief and interesting ways to activate students' knowledge and grab their attention. They love to learn about their teachers, and me leverage my love of Coke Zero is always a way to get their energy up for class and connect their learning to a real-life scenario that they see in the real world. The point of these hooks is that they're easily implementable, don't take a lot of planning, and are relevant and have some connection to the content of the lesson. If you see some of your students have some flagging engagement or drive from day-to-day, fun facts, pieces of information, demos, or mini-experiments are great ways to capture their attention.

Calculating Humidity

Unit 5: Meteorology
Lesson 3 of 17

Objective: SWBAT read a psychrometer and identify them as instruments that measure humidity | SWBAT use psychrometer readings to calculate relative humidity and dewpoint using the ESRT

Big Idea: In this lesson, students use their Earth Science Reference Tables to calculate both relative humidity and dew point, and they use a psychrometer to calculate the relative humidity and dew point in their own classrooms
