The Across Disciplines prompt asks students to note how the topic they’re studying intersects with other fields as well as with other topics within the same field.
Your unit on Weather has natural connections to social studies, language arts, and math. 📚 Across Disciplines reminds us to think broadly and note that weather has an enormous impact on civilizations, poets have tried to describe the weather for centuries, and predicting the weather is an enormous mathematical problem.
But note that there are also dozens of connections within science. With 📚Across Disciplines, you can also connect Weather to fuel sources (wind power? solar power?), biomes, adaptations, the electromagnetic spectrum, and measurement.
So, yes, it’s called Across Disciplines, but it’s also Within Disciplines.
