Curriculum Unit (pdf)

During the Doing Science CTI Seminar, the cohort experienced many different working science labs at the University of North Carolina Charlotte. Based on what I learned during the lab visits, I learned more about the scientific process and how scientists work in the real world. It is my objective to take the new understanding back into the classroom to provide students with a more authentic science experience. The objective of this unit is to incorporate games, classroom visitors, and hands-on activities for students to learn the Weather concepts of 5th grade Essential Standards. Students will learn the Essential Standards of the Weather Unit. The end result will be 80% of the students mastering (80% or higher) the Weather Essential Standards on the Weather Common Assessment and End of Grade Science Test.
