In this lesson, Dr. Jeff, Izzy, and Zoe help you learn about the differences between weather and climate. Weather is the day-to-day variation of the atmosphere’s condition locally. Climate is the variation of weather conditions over long periods of time, usually years. The scientific study of weather is called meteorology, and the people who study and predict the weather are meteorologists. Students will also be able to see a meteorologist and look at weather instruments like a rain gauge, thermometer, barometer, and anemometer!
This video satisfies the requirements for third-grade science proficiency.
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
. Represent data in tables and graphical displays to describe typical weather conditions expected during a particular season.
. Obtain and combine information to describe climates in different regions of the world.
