Resources cannot be aligned to this standard, browse sub-standards to find lessons.
Collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses result in changes in weather conditions.
Students can use the full range of science and engineering practices to make sense of natural phenomena and solve problems that require understanding how and why Earth is constantly changing.
Develop and use a model to describe how unequal heating and rotation of the Earth cause patterns of atmospheric and oceanic circulation that determine regional climates.
