Weather Lab is a browser-based app that allows you to take on the role of a meteorologist in North America. Interact with weather processes to predict spring weather and appropriate clothing for different regions of the United States. Follow the instructions to choose an ocean current and air mass, then make your prediction for preparing for the day's weather. Correct predictions initiate an animation showing the weather event, or click to see a satellite image of a similar event.

tag(s): air (105), oceans (149), temperature (35), weather (165)

In the Classroom

Use this interactive as an introduction to weather patterns and wind movements in North America. Provide time for each student or groups of students to play with the different options and make observations about the weather that results. Make this assignment an online lab activity including an analysis portion about what temperature variations create similar weather outcomes. If they are able, have students research online, or use a textbook, to look for reasons for the weather patterns. This activity can also be used after a class discussion to check for understanding of the concepts.

In the Classroom

Share this beautiful site and images on an interactive whiteboard or with a projector, then have students explore on their own. This site can be included with many different geography units to teach landforms found around the United States. Use as a starting point to learn more about our National Parks and Parks Service. Enhance learning by having students create an annotated image of other interesting geographic locations using a tool such as Google Drawings, reviewed here. Google Drawings allows you to annotate an image with links to videos, text, websites, and more. Not familiar with Google Drawings? Watch an archived OK2Ask session to learn how to use: OK2Ask Google Drawings, here. Challenge cooperative learning groups to create videos using FlexClip, reviewed here, of behind the scenes information from your hometown, then share them on a site such as TeacherTube, reviewed here.
