1 Earth Science Unit Overview: Chapter 4 – Earths Water Lesson 1 – Earth: The Blue Planet Lesson 2 – The Water Cycle Lesson 3 – Fresh Water Resources Lesson 4 – Californias Water Supply Chapter 5 – Earths Weather Lesson 1 – Earths Atmosphere Lesson 2 – Air Current and Wind Lesson 3 – Oceans and Air Temperature Lesson 4 – Severe Weather Lesson 5 – Predicting Weather Chapter 6 – The Solar System Lesson 1 – The Sun Lesson 2 – The Structure of the Solar System Lesson 3 – Gravity and Orbit

2 Predicting the Weather Lesson Overview: 1) What do we already know? 2) Vocabulary 3) Drawings 4) Main Ideas 5) Review Earths Weather: Lesson 5

3 Predicting the Weather What do we already know? BrainPOP Teaser BrainPOP Teaser 1)What causes severe weather? a) A warm front and a cold front colliding. The condensation of water. 2)What causes thunderstorms? a) A cold front moving into a warm front. 3) What are tornadoes? a) A funnel shaped cloud with a low pressure closure. Page 1 Earths Weather: Lesson 5

4 Predicting the Weather: Vocabulary Part I 1) forecast: to make your best guess before something happens (predicting weather). 2) meteorologist: a scientist who specializes in the study of Earths atmosphere and weather. 3) Weather map: shows the weather in a specific place at a specific time.

8 Predicting the Weather: Main Ideas 1)Who needs to know what the weather will be? (pg ) a) Meteorologist, people, farmers Quick Check (pg. 279) - Critical Thinking: What are symbols you could use to show on a map what the weather is like? a) Cold Front: line with triangles, Clouds: pictures of clouds, Warm Front: a line with mounds on it, Snow: snow flakes, Temperature: use different colors for different temperatures (red=hot & blue=cold), High Pressure system: H, Low pressure system: L, Rain: little dots or dashes, Cyclones: spiral or swirl, Wind: curvy dotted line. Page 6 Earths Weather: Lesson 5

9 2) What do weather fronts tell you? (pg ) a) They tell you what the weather is going to be like in the future. Quick Check (pg. 281) -Compare and Contrast: How does what low and high pressure systems tell you differ from what warm and cold fronts tell you? a) Warm and Cold fronts tell you weather is approaching. Low pressure signals warmer air and high pressure signals colder air. Page 7 Earths Weather: Lesson 5 Predicting the Weather: Main Ideas

10 3) What do lows and highs tell you? (pg ) a)They tell us about what our local weather is like. Quick Check (pg. 282) -Critical Thinking: What is the difference between high and low pressure air masses? a) A low pressure system is a large air mass with a low pressure center. A high pressure system is a large air mass with a high pressure center Page 8 Earths Weather: Lesson 5 Predicting the Weather: Main Ideas

11 4) How do weather forecasters collect data? (pg. 284) a) computers, satellites, radar, airplanes, weather balloons Quick Check (pg. 284) -Critical Thinking: Why does having additional data help meteorologists make forecasts more accurate? a) It is important to look at many key factors to make accurate predictions.
