Weather Instruments


In this module, students will investigate local weather and world climate. Through a series of activities, students will develop a basic understanding of how weather can be described in measurable quantities, such as temperature, wind, and precipitation. Students will use hands-on activities and real-time data investigations to study factors that affect weather and climate. As a part of the design challenge, students design a roof for a house to make it wind-resistant.
