Description

Air masses, air pressure, and weather fronts are interesting but complicated! This unit will help students understand the relationship of air pressure to weather changes. Students will learn about weather and climate in this unit. This HUGE unit is designed to completely address the NGSS standard for Middle School Earth Systems:  SEE an example of how to use Air Pressure and Weather Fronts here.

NGSS MS-ESS2-5. Collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses result in changes in weather conditions.
and This HUGE resource completely covers the Utah SEEd (Science and Engineering Education Standards) for 6th Grade 6.3.2.
Investigate the interactions between air masses
that cause changes in weather conditions. Collect and analyze weather data to provide evidence for how air masses flow from regions of high pressure to low pressure causing a change in weather. Examples of data collection could include field observations, laboratory experiments, weather maps, or diagrams.

From the disciplinary core idea Earth’s Systems: ESS2.D Weather and Climate

This resource includes two complete units of study. The first is on air pressure or atmospheric pressure. It includes 6 labs, response pages, a slideshow, interactive notebook flaps, and answer keys. The second unit is on air masses and weather fronts and builds on concepts addressed in the first unit. The Air Masses and Weather Front Unit includes an informative slideshow, nonfiction reading passage, comprehension questions aligned with the CCSS for Reading Informational Text, weather map task cards, worksheets with answer keys, interactive notebook flaps, and two quizzes that are designed to have similar questions to the End of Year testing for science.

Students will investigate using QR codes, reading informational text, and by performing experiments with easy to acquire household materials.

Students will love the investigations, informational text passages, slide shows, and engaging activities that will help them understand air masses, weather fronts, and air pressure and how they affect changes in weather conditions.

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.
