Description

Weather and climate are complicated topics. Everything you need to teach the Middle School NGSS Earth’s Systems pertaining to weather and climate is in this bundle. Purchase as a bundle and save 20% on these weather and climate resources for middle school science. Completely coverage of these standards From the Disciplinary Core Ideas: Earth’s Systems: ESS2.D Weather and Climate for NGSS Middle School.

This bundle includes the following units:

Air Masses, Air Pressure, and Weather Fronts

Climate and the Uneven Heating of the Earth’s Surface

Global Warning

Transpiration and Evaporation

Water Cycle in a Jar

This huge bundle of resources for NGSS Middle School Science Addresses a variety of standards. Students will learn about air pressure, air masses, weather fronts, uneven heating of the Earth’s surface, climate, the water cycle, and more.

 

Standards Addressed:

NGSS MS-ESS2-1. Develop a model to describe the cycling of Earth’s materials and the flow of energy that drives this process

NGSS MS-ESS2-4 Develop a model to describe the cycling of water through Earth’s systems driven by energy from the sun and the force of gravity.

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.

NGSS MS ESS2-6  Develop and use a model to describe how unequal heating and rotation of the Earth cause patterns. This is from the Earth”s Systems strand.

NGSS MS-ESS3-5. Ask questions to clarify evidence of the factors that have caused the rise in global temperatures over the past century.

These NGSS science resources are standards-based and include slideshows, nonfiction passages, comprehension pages, worksheets, lab pages, interactive notebook inserts, lesson plans, and more. The labs use simple, easy-to-find household materials that are inexpensive. This resource is aligned with the NGSS standards for Middle school science and uses phenomena to engage the students in critical thinking.

 

Science Concepts Addressed Include:

Water cycle

Transpiration

Air pressure

Air masses

Weather fronts

Uneven heating of Earth’s surfaces

Climate

Greenhouse Effect

Global Warming

Climate Change

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.

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!
