TYCH54 environment Digital or Physical Understanding the effects of wind current on weather In order to make the concept clear and facilitate the students learning, they may need to practice through exploration or by changing variables related to wind current and to find their effects on their own. The students at Middle school learn about wind currents which are generated due to uneven heating on the earth and air pressure of an area. The effect of wind current can be in the form of rainfall, cold weather, hot weather, cyclone etc. But the students find it difficult to understand the directions of wind currents and specially its effects on weather.
