EDIM 508 Statement Of Instructional Purpose And Usage Scenario

This presentation introduces the different types of clouds to the
students and highlights the key characteristics they are required
to know about each of them. The presentation is designed to be
used by the teacher in order to take the students through the
material but it could easily be used by students independently
to go over the information by themselves.

CIRRUS formed at high elevations wispy clouds usually consisting of ice crystals signal fair weather or an approaching warm front STRATUS formed at medium or low elevation spread out layer upon layer covering a large area as they thicken, precipitation usually occurs over that area CUMULUS formed at medium or low elevation puffy with flat bottoms often signal fair weather, but when they are darker, they may signal rain or thunderstorms CUMULONIMBUS also called a thunderhead often part of thunderstorm conditions that may accompany a cold front Now let's see a cumulonimbus develop. Introduction To Clouds - VIDEO Cumulonimbus Time Lapse - ANIMATION Clouds Are Cool Song - VIDEO Standard

South Carolina Science Standard 6.4.3:

Classify shapes and types of clouds according
to elevation and their associated
weather conditions and patterns. The purpose of this video is to introduce the students
to the different cloud types and give them some basic
information which will be reinforced with images and
facts as they move through the presentation. The video
should start playing automatically but there is a control
panel at the bottom that can start and stop it. For each of the four cloud types there is a separate
section which contains images of the clouds as well
as basic facts about them based on the South Carolina
science support document. If following the presentation
it should automatically highlight each group before moving
to each picture and fact, but at any time it is possible to move around and explore the different groups independent
of the preset presentation. This video shows a time lapse view of a landscape
over which clouds gradually build and form into a
cumulonimbus storm cloud. It is useful in showing
the students how clouds don't just appear but they slowly
layer and build upon each other until a thunderstorm
occurs. There is no sound with the video. Before finishing the presentation, there is a final video which contains
a song designed both to review the types of clouds and their characteristics
with the students as well as help them to remember the information they
have learned. There is a panel at the bottom of the video which can start and stop the video as well as a button which can mute the sound. Citations Cirrus Cloud Pictures
