InTeGrate
Students answer systems-focused questions about the water cycle, then complete calculations of relative humidity and dewpoints. Students plot the trajectory of air through the Hadley cycle.
Resource Type: Classroom Activities, Curricula and Instruction
Grade Level: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14
InTeGrate
Students read three case studies on urban water models then respond to formative assessment questions, before investigating indirect water use in manufacturing products they use. Then, students calculate water use for towns, cities and compare to reservoirs by analyzing map data for water...
