Overview: Students will learn about air masses and how they affect weather patterns. 

Learning Targets: 

● Students learn how air masses flow from regions of high pressure to low pressure, causing weather occurrences. 

● Students will be able to describe the characteristics of air masses based on their origins. 

● Students learn sudden changes in weather can result when different air masses collide. 

● Students will be able to make weather predictions using weather maps.

Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth's surface at varying time and spatial scales.
Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, continental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions.
Develop a model to describe the cycling of water through Earth's systems driven by energy from the sun and the force of gravity.
Collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses result in changes in weather conditions.
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.
