1. Question After you watch the video think about some other misconceptions people may have about the seasons. Do you know what causes the seasons? Ask your neighbor what they think causes the seasons. Another common science misconception is that climate and weather are the same thing. Do you know what climate is and what factors influence an areas climate? Ask your neighbor what they think climate is Next

3. Student Activity Use the resources provided to you to learn more about climate and seasons. Take notes on these topics making sure that you can help debunk common misconceptions about these topics and inform your classmates and school community.notes Keep in mind these questions while you are completing your research What is climate? What factors determine climate around the world? What is a season? What factors cause seasonal changes? Next Image Source: WorldBook This map shows the different climates of the world. Tropical climates occur in regions near the equator. Subarctic, tundra, and icecap climates dominate the areas around the North and South poles. Subtropical, oceanic, and continental climates occur in many areas between these extremes. Large areas of semiarid and desert climate cover western North and South America, northern and southern Africa, central Asia, and much of Australia. Highland climates occur in mountainous regions throughout the world.
4. Assessment Activity Now you will use your research to help inform your fellow classmates about climate and seasons. Watch the video to learn about the activity you will be completing. You will first be creating a script to use. You can also refer back to this document to make sure you know what is required. This rubric can also help you make sure you are on the right track!scriptdocumentrubric Next Image Source: Clipart.com
5. Enrichment Activities Another science misconception many people have is about global warming. Here are some resources to find more information about Global Warming: Global Warming (Video) Global Warming Greenhouse Effect (Video) Greenhouse Effect The Climate Change Debate (Infographic) The Climate Change Debate The Global Warming Infographic Solving Global Warming (Infographic) Solving Global Warming Global Climate Change (Interactive Website) Global Climate Change Global Warming Caused by Humans (Video) Global Warming Caused by Humans Global Warming (World Book Article) Global Warming Next Image Source: WorldBook
6. Teacher Support Materials BCPS Curriculum BCPS The student will explain the role and interaction of revolution, rotation, and gravity on the Sun-Earth-Moon system. BCPS The student will explain how global atmospheric conditions are affected when natural and human-induced change alters the transfer of energy and matter. Maryland State Curriculum Maryland State Curriculum The student will explain the role and interaction of revolution, rotation and gravity on the Sun-Earth-Moon system The student will explain how global conditions are affected when natural and human-induced change alter the transfer of energy and matter. Common Core State Standards Reading: 1. Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text. Writing: 7. Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation. Standards for the 21 st Century Learner Standards for the 21 st Century Learner Read, view, and listen for information presented in any format (e.g. textual, visual, media, digital) in order to make inferences and gather meaning Use strategies to draw conclusions from information and apply knowledge to curricular areas, real-world situations, and further investigations. Maryland Technology Literacy Standards for Students 3.0: Use a variety of technologies for learning and collaboration. Time Frame: Two 50 minute class periods Differentiation: Direct students to use comprehension tools included in databases, such as: audio read-aloud, labeled reading levels, and embedded dictionaries. Research resources are differentiated by reading level using sliver/gold stars (basic/challenging) Learning Styles: Visual Learners Auditory Learners Kinesthetic Learners Active Global Understanding Notes to the teacher: This Slam Dunk is for re-teaching Last updated: July 2012 Created by Gina Sharpe Library Media Specialist BCPS Slam Dunk Research Model, Copyright 2012, Baltimore County Public Schools, MD, all rights reserved.
