|Air and Weather Overview
SCHEDULING THE MODULE
The Getting Ready section for each part of the investigation
helps you prepare. It provides information on scheduling the
investigations and introduces the tools and techniques used in the
investigation. Be prepared—read the Getting Ready section first.
The first item in the Getting Ready section gives an estimated
amount of time the part should take. Parts generally take one class
session of 35–45 minutes.
Plan ahead for the scheduling of the parts. Below is a teaching
schedule for the module. The investigations are numbered, and we
suggest that they be conducted in that order, as the concepts build
upon each other from investigation to investigation. It is suggested
that a minimum of 8 weeks be devoted to this module. Weather
monitoring and recording on the class calendar should continue
through the year. At the end of each season, students make bar
graphs of specific weather conditions to look for patterns. Take
your time and explore the subject thoroughly.
This module is best started in the fall, so that students can monitor
changes in weather over the year.
