My name is Morgan Baumbach and I am a pre-service teacher studying at Penn State. I am currently working on a lesson (in 5E format) about weather and climate. I have been utilizing the SciPack titled 'Ocean's Effect on Weather and Climate', which offers a lot of great information. I would love for guidance relating to activities that can be used in my lesson as well as any further advice regarding teaching this lesson in a classroom setting.
I glad you are using the 5E model. During my weather unit for the engage stage I like to show my students real tv forecasts and analize the information shared by meteorologists. For the explain stage, I let my students put together their own severe weather forecast. Groups of 4 students: anchor, field meteorologist, studio meteorologist and community field reporter. Eeach of them will play and demosntrate what they have learned. Hope this helps.
Thank you so much for your insight! I am excited to utilize your ideas in a lesson plan of my own!
I recently did a 5E lesson plan over weather, specifially with the different clouds. I will be using your idea next time in incoorporating the tv forecasts. Children today probably don't actaully watch the weather like they use to. I think that it is a great idea!
