MADE: From KIPPster to Meteorologist!
My students need 20 interactive weather maps to learn how to predict weather patterns.
Our KIPPsters love science! They love getting their hands dirty, they love seeing things up close, and they love learning by doing! As their teacher, I often struggle to keep up with their appetite for "hands-on" because of a lack of resources at the school, but weather maps are within our reach!
Our scholars attend a KIPP charter school that accepts no excuses as we climb the mountain to college.
They go to school longer than their peers and they do more homework. They are pushed to do their absolute best at everything they do, no matter the circumstance that surrounds them. Because of all they do, we as teachers try to make their learning as much fun as it can possibly be, so that they never get tired of learning!
We need weather maps that we can use over and over every day as we learn how to predict the weather. Doing it once isn't enough! It takes practice, practice, practice! With these interactive weather maps we can constantly delve deeper and deeper into understanding of the causes and effects of different atmospheric conditions. During our meteorology unit students will learn about fronts, clouds, air masses, air pressure, the water cycle, local and global winds, and much more. Using these weather maps will enable them to merge all that knowledge into one hands-on application. A teacher dreams of having formative tasks like this for students to demonstrate the wealth of knowledge they have gained!
My students prove every single day that it is not how you start in life, but how you finish.
They accept no excuses about the area that they are from as they work to climb the mountain to college. By providing these students with the resources they need, you can help send a strong message about what we can expect from our educational system.
