1 10/15/13 36th Day of School Learning goal (7.E.1.5): I will be able to explain the influence of global winds and the jet stream on weather conditions. Due Today: Flashcards, Sandy vs. Joplin chart, Tornado vs. Hurricane Poster & Most Destructive Storm Paragraph Evening Assignment: Wind Foldable, Winter storm flashcards, and any missing work

2 Wind and Weather Assignment to complete today: Web Quest and Foldable

3 Introduction Wind and Weather The atmosphere has wind patterns. Uneven heating causes air to move through pressure differences (high -> low pressure) Earth’s rotation affects wind direction. There are three belts of global wind: trade winds, the westerlies, and the easterlies. Jet streams flow near the top of the troposphere. McDougall p. A48

4 Introduction Wind and Weather The atmosphere has wind patterns. Uneven heating causes air to move through pressure differences Earth’s rotation affects wind direction (Coriolis Effect) There are three belts of global wind: trade winds, the westerlies, and the easterlies. Jet streams flow near the top of the troposphere. McDougall p. A49

5 Introduction Wind and Weather The atmosphere has wind patterns. Uneven heating causes air to move through pressure differences. Earth’s rotation affects wind direction (Coriolis Effect). There are three belts of global wind: trade winds, the westerlies, and the easterlies. Jet streams flow West -> East near the top of the troposphere. McDougall p. A51

6 Introduction Wind and Weather The atmosphere has wind patterns. Uneven heating causes air to move through pressure differences. Earth’s rotation affects wind direction (Coriolis Effect). There are three belts of global wind: trade winds, the westerlies, and the easterlies. Jet streams flow West -> East near the top of the troposphere. McDougall p. A52

7 Purpose of Web Quest This web quest introduces several types of wind or wind factors that influence our weather: Coriolis effect Trade winds Westerlies Jet Stream Learning goal (7.E.1.5): I will be able to explain the influence of global winds and the jet stream on weather conditions.

8 Tasks Create a 4-flap foldable to be used to describe the winds or wind factors that affect our weather. 1)Your foldable should include the title, Wind and Weather, along with your name, date and core. Put this on the back of the foldable. 2)The 4 flaps should be labeled on the outside of the flap with each of the winds or factors: Coriolis effect trade winds westerlies, jet stream 3)Include the following information for each one on the inside flap: Description of wind or wind factor Direction of air movement How wind affects weather 4) Due Wednesday October 16 th.

9 Resources McDougall Textbook Ch. 2, section 2 (pages A47-52) ESD02BAD.PDF nt/visualizations/es1904/es1904page01.cfm nt/visualizations/es1904/es1904page01.cfm stream.html stream.html

10 Activity Investigate Coriolis Effect 1)Read the investigation on page A49. 2)Write the “What Do You Think? And the “Challenge” questions in your notebook. 3)You will need one partner. 4)Investigation materials are near the bulletin board. 5)Be sure you have read the procedure before you come to the table!

11 Evening Assignment Complete web quest and foldable. Foldable is due tomorrow!
