Investigating Weather and Climate

Interactive E-book Kids

Clear patterns emerge from weather data collected over time. These patterns are the foundation of what we understand as a location’s climate. By investigating the data of different climates for long-term patterns, students begin to notice that not all places share the same patterns and can actually be quite different. These differences are largely controlled by a location’s place in the world (latitude) and its geography. The Investigating Weather and Climatee-book explores how humans collect weather data on which a variety of weather and climate graphs and charts are built upon. It leads students to construct their own meaning from the patterns they uncover in the data, answering the driving question, what can we learn by observing and recording weather data? These e-books are highly interactive, self-directed learning experiences designed to augment understanding of science content. These e-books include high-resolution images, animations, videos, interactive simulations, and embedded assessment.

This E-Reader is a great supplemental and can be used to start a PBL. My Students became weather forecasters for a country/state they chose. This E-Reader can be used in a 5-10 minute time frame or a regular class period.
