Sunlight and Weather

Students learn about the Sun’s warming effect on Earth. They investigate how the Sun affects different Earth materials, which leads to how the Sun affects our weather. Students learn how to describe the weather to make observations and collect data. They use this data to describe patterns over time, which helps predict the weather. They view a local weather forecast to understand how the weather impacts their daily lives. Students practice how to dress for the day by dressing Angelina, Mylo, or Suzi based on a forecast. Then, they use the design process to design a structure that can reduce the Sun’s warming effect.
