Unit of InstructionWeather and Climate
Standard(s) Taught

SC.6.E.7.5
Explain how energy provided by the sun influences global patterns of
atmospheric movement and the temperature differences between air,
water, and land.

SC.6.N.3.4
Identify the role of models in the context of the sixth grade science
benchmarks.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will:
• explain how energy provided by the sun influences global patterns, including:
o atmospheric movement (wind)
o temperature differences between air (atmosphere,) land (geosphere,)
and water (hydrosphere)
• create a model to investigate how the sun’s energy causes changes in
temperature of air, land, and water, such as:
o a diagram showing how different surfaces reflect or absorb heat (i.e.
snow vs. ocean)
o a 3D representation of uneven heating because of the Earth’s tilt (i.e.
using a globe)
