Are you covering weather and climate in your middle school science class?
This complete unit will save you TONS of time and energy!
It's designed to completely address NGSS MS-ESS2-5, Middle School Earth Systems.
I've divided the content into two units of study.
The first is on air pressure or atmospheric pressure. It includes 6 labs, response pages, a slideshow (with scaffolded notes, to keep your students accountable), interactive notebook flaps, a quiz, and answer keys for everything!
The second unit is on air masses and weather fronts while also expanding on concepts addressed in the first unit.
This unit also includes an informative slideshow, a non-fiction reading passage, comprehension questions aligned with the CCSS for Reading Informational Text, a set of weather map task cards, worksheets, interactive notebook flaps, and two quizzes designed similarly to the end of year testing for science.
Students will LOVE these engaging activities!
There are investigations, informational text passages, slide shows, and so much more - everything helping your class to understand air masses, weather fronts, air pressure, and how they affect changes in weather conditions!
