Reviewer Comments:

In this unit, 6th grade students will investigate interaction of atmospheric conditions, including heating of land and water, and its effect on weather and climate. The introduction to the unit is strong and includes standards alignment and clear goals and objectives. Two hands-on labs follow, exploring both heated air masses and the water cycle. However, the unit appears to be unfinished. Although this unit alludes to a culminating project and more activities, none follow the initial background information. However, it is a strong start to a potentially excellent unit.
