Week of March 28th

This week’s learning targets in science:

  • Explain how the differences in surface temperature, due to the different heating and cooling rates of water and soil, affect the temperature and movement of the air above
  • Describe the relationship between temperature and the movement of atmospheric gases (i.e., warm air rises due to expansion of the volume of gas, cool air sinks due to contraction of the volume of gas)
  • Describe the composition of the Earth’s atmosphere (i.e., mixture of gases, water and minute particles) and how it circulates as air masses

Students got their Unit 7 post-test results yesterday. Students who had standards in remediation worked on test corrections. After some extra help during itime this week, students will take summatives next week.

Have a great week!
