Fifth graders observe and identify weather conditions. In this weather conditions lesson, 5th graders study an extreme weather table and use sources to identify weather conditions. Students make their own weather condition table and a daily record chart. Students record the weather over a 5 day period.
Young scholars explore the Earth's climatic regions and their characteristics. Using the Internet, they evaluate regional vegetation, agriculture, and population density. Students name and describe instruments that measure weather. They produce a simulated "weather news" program.
Third graders explore how to predict weather. In this weather lesson, 3rd graders visit weather.com and hypothesize about tools, instruments, and methods used to predict weather. Students work in small groups to design and build an instrument for predicting the weather. Each group collects data for two weeks, then the class reviews and compares data as a whole.
