This 1 ½ minute video shows the phenomenon of a cold front moving through Denver, CO over the course of a day in November. The time lapse video shows the time of day and temperatures.
The resource can be used as either a phenomena to engage students at the beginning of a lesson or an assessment of student understanding.
It could stimulate the following driving questions:
● What changes in weather conditions occurred throughout the day?
● How do the motions of air masses result in changes in weather conditions?
● How does the passing of the cold front affect the development and pattern of clouds? (Names of clouds are not required at the MS level, but clouds develop throughout and produce precipitation by the end of the video.)
