A full cup of water was placed near a window. Later a student noticed some of the water disappeared. What happened?

200

(Answers may vary) Ex: Hot day with no clouds or breeze.

What is rain gauge
What tool is used to measure how much rain has fallen?

200

What is weather is just the state of the atmosphere at any time, including things such as temperature, precipitation,wind speed, air pressure and cloud cover.
What is weather?

What is solid
Precipitation may fall as a liquid or a?

300

What is run off
Precipitation falls down a mountain side into a stream. This is called?

300

(Answers may vary) ex: Temperature in the low thirties
The first week of January's temperatures are as follows: 29, 30, 32, 33, ___, 35, 35. What prediction can you make about the missing temperature?

300

What is barometer
What tool is used to measure air pressure?

300

What is climate is the average weather over a long period of time. Climate is not the same as weather, but rather, it is the average pattern of weather for a particular region.
What is climate?

400

What is transpiration
What is the process by which plants give off water vapor?

400

What is condensation
What is the result when a gas changes into a liquid?

400

(Answers may vary) Temperatures in the high 40's, lower 50's
The high temperature for January was 35, March was 45, What do you think April could be?

400

What is anemometer
What tool is used to measure wind speed?

400

What is because the Earth is round and not flat, the Sun’s rays don’t fall evenly on the land and oceans. The Sun shines more directly near the equator bringing these areas more warmth.
How do the sun's rays affect weather?

500

Answers may vary: What is heat from the Sun causes water on Earth (in oceans, lakes, etc.) to evaporate (turn from liquid into gas) and rise into the sky. This water vapor collects in the sky in the form of clouds. As water vapor in the clouds cools down it becomes water again (turn from gas to liquid), this process is called condensation. Water falls from the sky in the form of rain, snow, hail, or sleet, this process is called precipitation.
Describe the water cycle.
