2 Instructions for using this template. Remember this is Jeopardy, so where I have written “Answer” this is the prompt the students will see, and where I have “Question” should be the student’s response. To enter your questions and answers, click once on the text on the slide, then highlight and just type over what’s there to replace it. If you hit Delete or Backspace, it sometimes makes the text box disappear. When clicking on the slide to move to the next appropriate slide, be sure you see the hand, not the arrow. (If you put your cursor over a text box, it will be an arrow and WILL NOT take you to the right location.)

3 Choose a category. You will be given the answer. You must give the correct question. Click to begin.

6 What is a cumulus cloud?

7 Billowy clouds that resemble cotton balls

8 What kind of cloud is this?

9 Stratus

10 What is the dew point?

11 A certain temperature where water vapor condenses

12 What is humidity?

13 The amount of water vapor in the air

14 What is a cirrus cloud?

15 A cloud that is wispy, feathery or fibrous looking

16 What is an air mass?

17 Large body of air with same temperature and moisture content.

18 What type of air mass forms over large landmasses?

19 Continental

20 Why does a continental air mass have low humidity?

21 It doesn’t form over a large water source.

22 What are the four types of fronts?

23 Cold, warm, stationary, occluded

24 Which type of front is this?

25 Cold Front

26 What is the difference between weather and climate?

27 Climate is average weather conditions over a long period of time

28 Why do we experience winter in Utah in November through March?

29 The northern hemisphere is tilted away from the sun.

30 Why is the West side of the Sierra Nevada Mtns in California so green, and the East side so brown and dry?

31 Rain shadow effect. Storms drop their precipitation when rising over the mountains from west to east.

32 What does the southbound California Current do for the weather for Utah?

33 Cools our temperatures

34 Is the following statement weather or climate: The highest temperature in Chicago was 105°F as recorded on July 24, 1934.

35 Weather

36 How has technology changed the ability to predict weather?

37 Satellites are used to track weather systems and monitor weather and climate of Earth.

38 According to the map, what type of weather might Florida be experiencing.

39 Cooler temperatures, storms, clouds, precipitation

40 Describe the weather in So. California.

41 75% cloud cover, weak wind from the North, 65°F

42 What weather instrument measures air pressure?

43 Barometer

44 Describe the temp, air pressure, clouds and wind.

45 75°F, air pressure, 50% clouds, east wind 25 knots

46 What causes the winds to blow?

47 Unequal heating in the atmosphere

48 Utah is located in the area of what global wind?

49 Westerlies

50 How does cold air at the poles and warm air at the equator cause air to move?

51 Convection. Cold air sinks & moves along the surface forcing warm air to rise.

52 Sea breeze or land breeze?

53 Sea Breeze

54 In the diagram, which direction will the wind blow?

55 Toward the water

56 What causes the Coriolis Effect?

57 Earth’s Rotation

58 A low-pressure system brings what type of weather?

59 Cloudy skies, precipitation

60 If you traveled south from the north pole, which way would your airplane deflect to reach your correct destination?

61 Deflection to the right

62 The barometric pressure increases from 28.4 inches to 31 inches the night before your wedding reception that is to be held outside. What happens to your plans?

63 Nothing! Your plans are the same and all is well.

64 High or Low Pressure??

65 Low pressure

66 Make your wager

67 What might best explain the results in the graph?

68 Less clouds means more of the Sun’s heat reaches the Earth and the temps rise.
