3-ESS2-1: Represent data in tables and graphical displays to describe typical weather conditions expected during a particular season.
3-ESS2-2: Obtain and combine information to describe climates in different regions of the world.
MS-ESS2-4: Develop a model to describe the cycling of water through Earth's systems driven by energy from the sun and the force of gravity
MS-ESS2-5: Collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses results in changes in weather conditions.
