By Miss O.
Directions: Listen to the book being read aloud and draw a web in your science notebook with the word “weather” in the middle. The web should have at least 6 cells coming out of it.
◦ 1. A (mercury, alcohol) ◦ 2. Uses mercury and is marked in millibars/MEASURE DIFFERENT THINGS ◦ 3. A (wind speed) ◦ 4. B. (balloon) ◦ 5. radio waves bounce off large raindrops back to antennae and how fast the wind is blowing where it is raining. 6.D (colors) 7.C (millibars) 8.Coming precipitation (rain) Or a possible storm
Directions: 1. Write the name of the tool on the outside flap. 2. Draw a picture of the tool on the inside flap. 3. Write the definition of the tool across from your picture. Don’t forget to put your name on the back and use it to study!
Measures air pressure
Measures temperature the amount of heat in the air
Directions: In your science notebook, draw the layers of the atmosphere in an arch in their order with labels and color them the following colors: 1. Troposphere 2. Stratosphere 3. Mesosphere 4. Thermosphere

Directions: After reviewing the 4 types of clouds and their definitions, we will use a large piece of blue construction paper, a sharpie, glue, and cotton balls to make those cloud types.
High, wispy ice clouds.
Fluffy low clouds
Low clouds that block out sunlight
Towering clouds that cause thunderstorms
Cirrus high, wispy ice clouds Stratus Low clouds that block out sunlight Cumulous Fluffy, low clouds Cumulonimbus Towering clouds that cause thunderstorms
(to the tune of London Bridges) Cirrus clouds are up so high, up so high, up so Cirrus clouds are wispy ice, wispy ice and cold. Stratus clouds are way down low, way down low, way down low. Stratus clouds are flat and low. They block out the sunlight. Cumulus are fluffy clouds, fluffy clouds, fluffy clouds. Cumulus are fluffy clouds. They mean fair weather. Cumu-lo-nimbus clouds are big, big and tall, big and tall. Cumu-lo-nimbus mean thunderstorms. Thunderstorms are coming!
Directions: Today you will draw what a cold front looks like coming in and then what a warm front looks like coming in. Be sure to label and draw your arrows neatly. mode=true&persist_safety_mode=1&safe=active Go over homework answers from “Weather Fronts” reading.
Warm air is abruptly pushed upward, cooling, condensing moisture into cumulus or cumulonimb us clouds
Notice how steep the angle is between the two air masses Typically brings sudden, heavy rains and storms
WARM FRONT: when a warm air mass moves into a colder,denser air mass. Warm air rides up and over the colder air
The weather during a WARM FRONT starts with cirrus clouds about hours before the rain begins Cirrus clouds are “at the front of the front”
As more warm air is pushed upward, more moisture condenses forming cirrostratus clouds
As warm more warm air is pushed up, heavier clouds form mid-way up over the cold air Altostratus and stratus
Go over the answers to the weather map reading together. Directions: Today you will draw and label the symbols of a cold front, warm front, stationary front, as well as high and low pressure and be able to identify them on a map!
