Time Required: 2 hours can be split into two minute sessions. Although no charge or fee is required for using TeachEngineering curricular materials in your classroom, the lessons and activities often require material supplies.
The expendable cost is the estimated cost of supplies needed for each group of students involved in the activity. Air temperature differentials generate daytime sea breezes and nighttime land breezes.
At times, it can be difficult to monitor atmosphere and ocean systems due to limited access, extreme weather or lack of a communication infrastructure. Engineers are revolutionizing the way we monitor the natural environment by creating environmental remote sensors ERS for improving weather forecasting.
Engineers design sensor networks to extract information from the natural environment via an array of sensors and store that information in a repository on a server.
These systems have the potential to provide scientists with new environmental and climate data as well as important hazard alerts. ERSs are most important in remote or dangerous environments that have never been studied before due to their inaccessibility, such as NASA's project in Antarctica and future projects on Mars and Europa. Students approach the problems presented in this activity as engineers, scientists or other researchers would, using wireless sensors to collect environmental data.
Each TeachEngineering lesson or activity is correlated to one or more K science, technology, engineering or math STEM educational standards. In the ASN, standards are hierarchically structured: first by source; e. Plan an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred, the type of matter, the mass, and the change in the average kinetic energy of the particles as measured by the temperature of the sample.

They also learn about examples of heating and cooling devices, from stove tops to car radiators, that they encounter in their homes, scho Students learn about the definition of heat as a form of energy and how it exists in everyday life. They learn about the three types of heat transfer—conduction, convection and radiation—as well as the connection between heat and insulation. Students are introduced to the ways that engineers study and harness the wind.
They learn about the different kinds of winds and how to measure wind direction. In addition, they learn how air pressure creates winds and how engineers design and test wind turbines to harness renewable wind energy.
Instructions for a teacher demo using water, heat and food coloring to show students see how convection moves the Sun's energy from its core outwards. Students learn about the three different modes of heat transfer convection, conduction, radiation and how they are related to the Sun and life on E Have ready handouts, demonstration materials and ability to show an online animation, as described in the Materials List and Procedure section. Think of a hot summer day. Have you experienced walking barefoot on a hot surface?
Yes or no? Who can give me some examples of hot surfaces that almost burned your feet? Listen to student examples, such walking barefoot on asphalt, concrete, beach sand or soil. What was your reaction and how did you get yourself out of that situation? Listen to student responses.
Did any of you place your feet in water or step onto a wet surface? What can you conclude about the hot dry surface versus the wet surface or water? Expect students to conclude that on a hot summer day, the hot dry surface is heated up more than the wet surface or water. What scientific principles have we experienced from these situations?Each piece of candy has a number on it.

A series of events A series of events What did you do today?Differential Heating and Cooling of Land and Ocean. All you need to do on a sunny day is walk on a dry beach in the early afternoon to learn that the sand can get very much warmer than sea water. Water is a slow conductor of heat, thus it needs to gain more energy than the sand or dry land in order for its temperature to increase.
On the other hand, soil loses its heat much faster. But your toasted toes would perhaps mislead your mind: Earth's oceans are far more important than the land as a source of the heat energy which drives the weather.
Additionally the oceans retain heat longer. The Sun's rays also penetrate the oceans to a depth of many meters, but only heat up the top layer of the sand or soil. Water has to lose more energy than the sand dry land in order for the temperature to decrease.
During the summer the land is much warmer than the water. It's made up of many different materials which absorb the Sun's rays differently. Land covered in forests or snow warms and cools very differently from a city blanketed with asphalt streets and concrete buildings. Darker materials absorb more radiation than lighter materials. Texture also matters. Rougher and dryer materials absorb more radiation than smoother and wetter materials.
If you have ever walked barefoot on a street or sidewalk you'll recall these are much hotter than the grass beside them. This Activity can also be adapted to challenge older students to come up with their own experimental protocols to test some of these fundamental and important principles.
As an extension, you can invite students to suggest various materials to test other than those specified here. Students will observe that different colors absorb different amounts of the Sun's radiation.
Provide temperature maps to each group of students see p. Allow time for them to study there maps and share observations with each other. Then ask each team to prepare generalizations they have gathered from the maps.Username: Username.

This mini-unit will help your students grasp these concepts.The worksheets span a wide array of topics. The interesting thing is that we always find a way to cover elementary, middle school, and high school topics and leveled work.
When compounds or mixtures come in contact with one another electron transfer can make a ton of different cool things happen. Data collection is one of the fundamental processes in this subject area. We work on getting it right the first time. We look at animals that are rare in nature and often forced to be in captivity to allow the species to continue on.
These aren't your everyday birds, in fact, there aren't many birds in here at all. You would be amazed by some of the animals that can take flight. An important skill in many disciplines, but we look specifically at how graphing to help you solve problems. We look at questions that many school-aged children have on their minds. The questions are so simple, but many of have them. Often overlooked, this is how we collect data that will help us better understand what we are examning.
It's probably important to know we can do it best. There are some animals that often slip our mind and we take for granted that are right in our backyards.
We take a look at those animals in this section. We take a look at some really cool critters that are in that big, blue mystery. We looked at what lives in the ocean. Now we take a look the dynamics and physics behind oceans.
For instance, "Where do waves come from?
