(View Complete Item Description)

In this lesson, students write the draft of their position paper about a screen time recommendation for the AAP. This lesson is written as a timed, on-demand drafting experience not only to keep management of the drafting process simple for the teacher, but also to give students “solo” experience in writing under timed, on-demand circumstances.

Clouds

(View Complete Item Description)

In this scenario-based, problem-based learning (PBL) activity, students investigate cloud formation, cloud classification, and the role of clouds in heating and cooling the Earth; how to interpret TRMM (Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission) images and data; and the role clouds play in the Earth’s radiant budget and climate. Students assume the role of weather interns in a state climatology office and assist a frustrated student in a homework assignment. Learning is supported by a cloud in a bottle and an ice-albedo demonstration, a three-day cloud monitoring outdoor activity, and student journal assignments. The hands-on activities require two 2-liter soda bottles, an infrared heat lamp, and two thermometers. The resource includes a teacher's guide, questions and answer key, assessment rubric, glossary, and an appendix with information supporting PBL in the classroom.
