We will complete our Jet Toy unit in May. Students will work in groups of 3. Each group will need a shoe box to use as a garage to keep their supplies and balloon powered car safe.

Chapter 7 Notes for Quiz: 

*75% or 3/4th of the Earth is covered by water.

*The largest and deepest ocean is the Pacific Ocean.

*Salinity- the measure of how salty water is.

  • The salt in ocean water comes from rocks and soil dissolved and carried to the ocean by rivers.
  • Currents in the ocean are caused by cold salt water sinking under warmer water.
  • Currents on the surface are caused by winds.

* The Gulf Stream current moves warm water from the Caribbean Sea to the North Atlantic Ocean.

* The California current carries cold water southward along the coast of the United States.

 Fresh  Water: Less than 3% of Earth’s water is fresh water. 7/10 of that is frozen in ice.

 Surface Fresh water sources:

      Rivers, streams, lakes,

 Iceberg: Floating pieces of ice that broke off ice sheets.

 Ground Water:  Rain or melted snow that soaks into the ground.

 Water Table: The top level of ground water in an aquifer.

Frost is caused when water vapor turns to ice crystals. P. 209

Condensation-  water vapor turns in to liquid such as water droplets in clouds. Condensation forms dew.

 Clouds form when air moves upward to areas of less air pressure. They are made of water vapor and ice crystals. (They even have ice crystals on a summer day since it is very cold up high in the sky!)

Sleet is rain drops that freeze as they reach the ground.
