Objectives for Meteorology Menu Project

Students can identify. . .

Timeline: 3 weeks

Topics:

  1.  Atmosphere
  2. Water Cycle
  3. Heat Transfer - Radiation, Conduction and Convection
  4. Air Pressure
  5. Weather- Fronts
  6. Storms- Hurricanes, Tornadoes

Requirements:

Directions: Each group creates a Thinglink that MUST include:

  1.  Lab written in scientific method format using Google Slides
  2.  Article and include at least three comprehension questions with answers and a   separate answer key
  3.  Quiz using Google Forms
  4.  Three creative choices from the Meteorology Menu Board below.

   Design a comic strip using ‘Pixton for Fun’ (www.pixton.com) that explains how air pressure is connected to altitude.  As you use pictures and speech bubbles in your story, include examples of how people are affected by air pressure in our atmosphere and hydrosphere every day.


     

On a Google Doc, create a fictional story about the water cycle that includes all the steps and explains the cause and effect of the cycle.  To check that the students understand how the water cycle works, create a quiz with ten multiple-choice questions on a Google Form.  

Complete a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast two concepts  from one of the six topics above.  Include at least ten bullet points total.                 
   

 Design an Kahoot! game  or create a Who Wants to be a Millionaire game using the template found in Google Classroom.  Include at least fifteen questions with the correct answers.

        Choice

(Fill out your proposal form before beginning the

free choice!)

Choose four different cities in the United States.  Explain how the weather patterns are different in each city for a five day period.  As a meteorologist(s), explain why certain types of fronts are happening in those specific area or why some cities have a clear day and others have severe weather conditions.  

Write a play on a Google DOC where Troposphere is introducing the other layers of Earth’s atmosphere. However, Troposphere is a very proud atmospheric layer who feels he   protects all the living things on earth.  The other layers explain how they are important, too.  Include at least two facts for each layer that support their importance.    

                 

            Write a comedy play on a Google DOC about the weather forecast for a local weather station. Use a weather map to display a legend,  weather symbols that include wind speed and direction.  Also, include types of air masses and fronts in the play.  Remember to explain the cause and effect of weather patterns.                

Write a debate on a Google DOC about the three ‘Super Heroes of Heat Transfer’ called Mr. Conduction, Ms. Convection, and Mrs. Radiation.  In a friendly argument, each one explains how powerful he or she is for Earth’s atmosphere, lithosphere, and hydrosphere.  Include at least two facts for each type of heat transfer that explains their importance.        

               

Type in an X in the boxes your group plans to include in your meteorology project.  If you chose the Menu Free Choice as part of your Thinglink, please explain your ideas in the box below before submitting this DOC to me.
