Title: Atmospheric Movement
Description: This lesson plan will educate students on how to identify how global patterns of atmospheric movement influence local weather using weather maps that show high and low pressures and fronts. The lesson will also educate students on what conditions are necessary for changes in weather and how those changes affect weather on a global scale. This lesson includes two firey demonstrations and a hands on build-a-barometer activity!

Teacher's Request: TEKS 8.10B - identify how global patterns of atmospheric movement influence local weather using weather maps that show high and low pressures and fronts. We are looking for student labs, inquiry based ideas, or teacher demos to illustrate this principle. We have access to computer labs and laptop carts (all Macs), Eno Boards, and some probeware. Thank you!
