Weather Unit: Intro Notebook Pages (Free)

What is meteorology? What tools do scientists use to study the weather? These are some of the basic questions we covered as we started off our weather unit!

Below are the pages we went over on our first day… it covers a few basics and some background about the history of meteorology.  I also rounded up some interesting weather facts and we read through those as well.

Then we’ll be jumping off into a study of the atmosphere before learning about air pressure, weather fronts and all that.

They are free to download just click on the link below. The answers are included, but are not pictured below:

UPDATE: I’ve now combined these pages with the other weather worksheets and hands-on activities we did for this unit. You’ll find the entire packet here. It’s a free download! Enjoy! ~Liesl

Biology Packet – The Biosphere

We talked a lot about the abiotic factors that make up an ecosystem (anything that is not living — climate, soil, weather, etc.), as well as touching on dominant plants and animals.  We spent time on feeding relationships and biological interactions. So, we went over the basic terms like herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, detritivores. And, we also talked a lot about the more complex biological interactions — from mutualism,when two species interact and both get something positive out of the interaction, to various forms of amensalism – when one organism benefits and the other is harmed and/or destroyed like parasitism, competition and antibiosis. We talked about the food chain and food webs as well as the difference between habitats, ecosystems, and biomes.

Biology Packet-The BiosphereOcean Unit

After our Biology/Biosphere Unit, we went on to study the hydrosphere — ie. the ocean. Find out more about our ocean unit here:
