The weather is the classic go-to conversation starter or when you want to fill an awkward silence. We all do it and are probably quite good at it. However, there is more to talking about the weather than that.
A weather activity with your class is not just something cute to entertain your learners; it is a way to introduce early learners to the concepts of science. As learners progress through school, meteorology is a great way to get them interested in other STEM disciplines.
Weather is observable and measurable. They can see the rain, put a container out to capture it and measure how much has fallen in their area. When they play sport, they can feel how the heat causes their body’s cooling system to kick in. It is science!
Add some of our resources to your lessons on weather and see your students become budding scientists. 😄
Meteorology Unit Study
This exciting unit study about Meteorology covers everything a student needs to know about meteorology, from the basic understanding to a complete overview of the subject.
This book explains how meteorologists use their knowledge and skills – focusing on aspects of nature, as well as information provided by weather instruments – to help them predict the weather. It also explains how different industries are affected by weather and why they heavily rely on weather forecasts for their safety and productivity.
