MS.E.4. GRADE FIVE: Earth and Space Science
Earth’s Systems and Cycles
E.4.9B. Students will demonstrate an understanding of weather and climate patterns.
E.4.9B.1. Analyze and interpret data (e.g., temperature, precipitation, wind speed/direction, relative humidity, or cloud types) to predict changes in weather over time.
E.4.9B.2. Construct explanations about regional climate differences using maps and long-term data from various regions.
E.4.9B.3. Design weather instruments utilized to measure weather conditions (e.g., barometer, hygrometer, rain gauge, anemometer, or wind vane). Use an engineering design process to define the problem, design, construct, evaluate, and improve the weather instrument.
E.4.9C. Students will demonstrate an understanding of how natural processes and human activities affect the features of Earth’s landforms and oceans.
E.4.9C.5. Obtain and communicate information about severe weather phenomena (e.g., thunderstorms, hurricanes, or tornadoes) to explain steps humans can take to reduce the impact of severe weather events.
