                                      Big Picture Goal: To be able to answer the Essential Question

         at the end of your reading and definitely at the conclusion of studying for an exam

                                                       also 

         think about answering the essential question as you continue to deposit more

                                       information into your bank

 
--- Essential Question ---

 

(of Unit 2 – Chapters 6, 4, & 5)

 

How do Matter and Energy Interact to Produce Weather?

(Can you even understand the question? Maybe you should break it down to easier terms to begin to figure out where you are and where you need to go.)
