Weather and Water



This is a FOSS science course that focuses on Earth's atmosphere, weather, and water.  Through this unit, students will realize that understanding weather is more than just reading a thermometer and recording air-pressure measurements.  They will form ideas about atoms and molecules, changes of state, and heat transfer before moving into ideas relating to air masses and fronts, convection cells and winds, and the development of severe weather.
