ESS2D - Weather & Climate

Next Generation Science Standards Earth Science Disciplinary Core Idea 2D:  Weather & Climate

In this video Paul Andersen describes both weather and climate. Weather is the day-to-day conditions on the Earth's surface, including temperature, wind, humidity, air pressure, and precipitation. Climate are the long term conditions on the Earth's surface. Both climate and weather are determined by sunlight, water, landforms and life forms. A K-12 teaching progression is also included.
