Clouds serve as a theme in a series of linked introductory explorations in math, language arts, and science. After participating in a demonstration of cloud formation, students are directed to create an acrostic poem (a poem that uses the letters in a word to start each line of the poem) and peer review and edit each other's work. The class collects atmospheric temperature and cloud cover data over ... Full description.

This is an activity about seasons. Learners begin by brainstorming a list of activities and events that occur in each season. Next, learners perform an experiment by comparing the temperature on thermometers left under a lamp for different lengths of time to illustrate that Earth heats more when the Sun is in the sky longer.

This is a lesson plan for several related activities about the Sun. Learners will observe how a candle flame is like the Sun, brainstorm why the Sun is needed and how energy from the Sun is used, construct a Sun-Earth scale model illustrating both size and distance, and build and use a small solar oven. The scale model activity requires a straight-line distance of 55 meters to show the Sun-Earth size ... Full description.
