1 The Natural Occurrences of the World The Natural Occurrences of the World By Courtney Koch

2 Audience 0 This presentation is for third-fourth graders or upper level special needs students. 0 It is geared toward any student who has an interest in weather or meteorology. In some circumstances, astrology may be an interest as well.

3 Environment 0 This presentation is applicable in any elementary classroom or special education classroom (given proper accommodations). 0 It can be taught in a history class while discussing specific natural disasters or in a science class while discussing how natural occurrences are formed.

4 Objective 0 Given a list, students will be able to identify whether or not a certain disaster is a natural occurrence with 100% accuracy.

5 Orientation 0 Natural occurrences are created by the Earth, and the Earth alone. Humans do not take part in creating or destroying any natural disaster or phenomena. This includes weather and geologic phenomena's as well.

6 How is this information relevant to your life? 0 The information presented in this lesson can be discussed at home, at school and amongst friends. Knowing about different types of natural occurrences and weather will make you a well-rounded student who is knowledgeable in many topics!

14 Wind 0 Wind is one of the most common natural occurrences and one that occurs daily. When was the last time that you saw wind? Can you remember? Probably, yes.

15 Wind 0 Wind is created when a mass of unstable air gets together. Since the earths surface is made of both land and water, the air soaks up the suns radiation unevenly.unstable 0 Think of Earth as a sponge that soaks up hot air from the land and cool air from the water.

16 Wind 0 Wind is produced by the uneven heating of the earths surface by the sun. Two factors are necessary to make wind: speed and direction.

18 Tornado 0 A tornado is a violent rotating column of air extending from a thunderstorm to the ground.

19 Tornado 0 Here is a diagram that shows the cool, dry air meeting with the warm, humid air.

20 Tornado 0 Tornadoes occur when warm moist air in the lower atmosphere and cold dry air in the upper atmosphere combine to create a huge cyclone in the air.atmosphere 0 Tornadoes can get up to 300 mph winds. They can destroy large buildings, uproot trees and hurl vehicles hundreds of yards.

22 Shooting star 0 There are several hundred comets that spend most of their lives in our Solar System. These comets leave many trails of gas and dust behind them.

23 Shooting star 0 Sand-sized grains of dust are known as meteors. When they slam into the air above the Earth, they get hot very quickly. As the meteors burn up, they leave bright streaks of light across the night sky. These are often called 'shooting stars' or 'falling stars'.

25 Rainbow 0 Rainbows are bright rays of color. To humans, sunlight looks whitebut it's really made up of different colors. (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.) 0 The sun makes rainbows when white sunlight passes through rain drops. The raindrops act like tiny mirrors. Even though they are really clear, they reflect back to humans as a rainbow.

26 Rainbow 0 Three conditions must be met in order for you to see a rainbow. First, it must be raining. Second, the sun must be shining. Third, the observer must be between the sun and the rain. The lower the sun is in the sky, the higher the arc of the rainbow will be.

28 Aurora borealis 0 Aurora borealis, also known as The Northern Lights, are one of the most spectacular light shows to watch as vivid colors glow in the sky.

29 Aurora borealis 0 Think of the Earth as a magnet and it has a strong magnetic field around it. The sun sends out a solar wind. This wind is made up of light particles which blow toward the earth.a solar wind 0 The particles collide with gases in the atmosphere causing the particles to glow, which make the lights you see in shades of red, green, blue and violet.
