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:
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.
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.
