Properties of Air
describe situations demonstrating that air takes up space, has mass, and expands when heated (300-14)XXXXXXXX

Movement of Air and Water
identify patterns in indoor and outdoor air movement (302-10)XXXXXXXX
relate the constant circulation of water on Earth to the processes of evaporation, condensation, and precipitation (301-13)XXXXXXXX

ask different people in the community and region for advice on how to predict weather, and compare their tools and techniques (107-2, 107-10, 207-4)XXXXXXXX
provide examples of ways that weather forecasts are used by various people in their community (107-5)XXXXXXXX
describe and predict patterns of change in local weather conditions (204-3, 301-14)XXXXXXXX
Environmental Issues
identify examples of weather phenomena that are currently being studied (105-1)XXXXXXXX
identify positive and negative effects of technologies that affect weather and the environment (108-1)XXXXXXXX
describe how studies of the depletion of the ozone layer, global warming and the increase in acid rain have led to new inventions and stricter regulations on emissions from cars, factories, and other polluting technologies (106-4)XXXXXXXX
