Science of Weather is a flexible earth science module supported in part by the National Science Foundation. It was designed for the middle and high school classroom, but can be adapted for lower grades and for professional development. It can be used as a stand-alone curriculum or as a complement to existing weather, climate, and environmental science modules. It consists of a set of hands-on experiments, math applications, reading assignments, SAT tests, and review guides, scaffolded through individual worksheets. This teacher guide provides step-by-step guidance to teach the third part of the series, Radiation, with tips and FAQs about:

  • visible light and colors;
  • primary vs. secondary colors;
  • the eye and how we can see;
  • infrared radiation;
  • the relationship between temperature and the emission of radiation;
  • the history of the theory of light;
  • the difference between incandescent and fluorescent bulbs;
  • visible and infrared satellite images;
  • temperature contrasts;
  • the pole-equator heat imbalance and midlatitude cyclones;
  • the greenhouse effect and global warming;
  • the politics of global warming and the Kyoto Protocol;
  • the ozone hole.
Students also explore the history of meteorology, and history of science in general, as well as logical reasoning and critical thinking, science writing, summarizing and synthesizing, peer review and constructive criticism, with an emphasis on global and systemic thinking.
