This extended project uses scientific observation to show how the weather we experience is formed by a number of linked atmospheric variables, including air pressure, wind direction and rain fall. Pupils identify information that needs to be collected, design and produce specialist apparatus to gather data, then analyse that data to make predictions (forecasts) about conditions in the immediate future.
Individual aspects of this project can be used in isolation - eg. creating a barometer to study changes in air pressure.
By the end of this activity pupils will have:
• Conducted experiments and research to deepen their understanding of the atmospheric variables responsible for our weather
• Designed, produced and evaluated instruments to gather specific data
• Analysed results to make predictions about weather in the immediate future
