Exploring Small Climates--An Outdoor Science Technique.
Rillo, Thomas J.
The study of climates in small areas as an outdoor science teaching technique is described in this paper. It is suggested that, while teachers are presenting a weather unit to their elementary school classes, they should not overlook the opportunity to make learning more meaningful through outdoor teaching techniques. Explorations of temperatures in different places may indicate that factors affecting weather, such as temperature, humidity, sun radiation, wind and air movement, conductivity, shape of the land surface, and precipitation may vary as much for the little climates as they do for a general region. Various methods of observing the weather are suggested. A lesson plan for the study of small climates provides the following: objectives, concepts, vocabulary, materials, instructional procedure and activities, and evaluation. (PS)
