Standards Alignment

National Standards

Next Generation Science Standards

3-ESS2-1. Represent data in tables and graphical displays to describe typical weather conditions expected during a particular season.

ESS2.D: Weather and Climate
Scientists record patterns of the weather across different times and areas so that they can make predictions about what kind of weather might happen next.

ESS2.D: Weather and Climate
Climate describes a range of an area's typical weather conditions and the extent to which those conditions vary over years.

Patterns
Patterns of change can be used to make predictions.

3-ESS2-2. Obtain and combine information to describe
Obtain and combine information from books and other reliable media to explain phenomena.climates in different regions of the world.

State Standards

South Carolina-
4.E.2B.1 Analyze and interpret data from observations, measurements, and weather maps to describe patterns in local weather conditions (including temperature, precipitation, wind speed/direction, relative humidity, and cloud types) and predict changes in weather over time.
4.E.2B.2 Obtain and communicate information about severe weather phenomena (including thunderstorms, hurricanes, and tornadoes) to explain steps humans can take to reduce the impact of severe weather phenomena.
6.E.2B.1 Analyze and interpret data from weather conditions (including wind speed and direction, air temperature, humidity, cloud types, and air pressure), weather maps, satellites, and radar to predict local weather patterns and conditions.
6.E.2B.2 Develop and use models to explain how relationships between the movement and interactions of air masses, high and low pressure systems, and frontal boundaries result in weather conditions and storms (including thunderstorms, hurricanes and tornadoes).
