The sun shining down on the tropical waters powers the global weather system. In this video, students will explore the ways oceans impact our global weather. Where water is absolutely essential for our survival, its distribution is disproportionate. Oceans are the biggest water reservoirs on Earth. Evaporated water and winds from the oceans are responsible for rainstorms, sandstorms, and monsoon rains on different regions of Earth.
This video satisfies the 5-ESS2-1 requirement of fifth-grade science proficiency.
Students who demonstrate understanding can: 5-ESS2-1. Develop a model using an example to describe ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interact.
