Here are some Frame, Focus and Follow-up suggestions for using this video in a math lesson.
What is Frame, Focus and Follow-up?
Frame: Have you ever noticed droplets of water forming on grass? Or on the outside of a cold soda can? This is called dew (or condensation, in the case of the can), and it forms when the dew point of the air is higher then the temperature on the surface of the grass or can. Have you ever heard a meteorologist talk about the dew point? The dew point is the temperature at which the air becomes saturated and dew forms.
Focus: Watch and take note of how Stormy Gale shows the kids how to find the dew point using a can of water and a bucket of ice.
