Students examine instruments used to measure weather, record the data, and post it to an online weather report. They include a 24 hour prediction, keep a weather log, and graph the data.
Students explore common tools used to measure weather. In this science lesson, students read a thermometer and discuss the various activities that one would participate in during that temperature.
Over a span of two weeks or more, mini meteorologists record weather-related measurements. What makes this particular resource different from others covering similar activities are the thorough details for the teacher and printables for the learners. While the resources by this publisher refer to British Colombia in Canada, they are quite useful no matter where you live.
Students work in cooperative groups to create a working weather station. Tkey use the weather station to collect weather data over a one-week period. Students compare the data from their weather station to actual weather information from newspapers or online sources.
Fourth graders observe and write descriptions of the weather in a journal for one week. They research the daily journals of Lewis and Clark, compare the weather words used to their own personal journals, and discuss the need to accurately measure weather.
Fourth graders discuss how to accurately measure weather, gather materials in order to make instruments, and build weather instruments in which they measure and record different aspects of weather for a five-day period.
High schoolers 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.
Students study the origins and movements of the different types of tropical storms. They track the path of a tropical storm. They share class presentations based on their research.
Students explain ways that meteorologists measure and predict weather, collaborate on creating some weather measurement instruments and keep a weather journal for one week.
In this measuring weather worksheet, students fill in the blank of 4 statements about the different tools scientists use to measure weather. This worksheet is a graphic organizer.
Students investigate weather and how parts of a system work together.  In this weather lesson students see how a barometer works and analyze the changes in weather conditions. 
Sixth graders make weather measuring equipment. In this integrated instructional activity students use a variety of weather tools to collect data. Students record and analyze the data.
Students explore mathematics by participating in a nature measurement activity. In this rain activity, students discuss the appropriate methods used in order to measure rain downpour. Students utilize a plastic bottle, tape, stones and a marker to conduct a rain measurement experiment while later answer study questions regarding the results.
After viewing a short video about a climb up Mount Everest, high schoolers read about triangulation for measuring distant elevations. Have your class work in groups to construct an inclinometer and then use it to measure the height of three schoolyard trees. The video makes for a fascinating anticipatory set to practicing the triangulation technique.
Concise, yet complete, this set of seven slides describes with photos and text the different basic instruments for measuring weather factors. After viewing, young meteorologists will be able to talk about how to measure humidity, wind direction, wind speed, air pressure, and precipitation. 
Few things are as fascinating as the challenge of climbing Mount Everest. This lesson investigates how monsoon weather impacts climbers. To begin, you are instructed to show various video clips. The only one directly provided, however, has a singular use of inappropriate language that may prevent you from wanting to show this particular clip. The rest of the lesson involves analyzing winter and summer weather maps for the area and creating climographs of two different locations. 
Here is a fabulous collection of lessons for your emerging meteorologists! In them, learners will utilize satellite data to determine distribution of rainfall, research global rainfall patterns, and utilize their knowledge to propose new instruments and satellite missions that can help us understand the changes in the earth's climate. Some fantastic worksheets, weblinks, and other educational resources are embedded in an incredibly detailed and exciting lesson plan.
Learners examine the need for a standard unit of temperature and measure temperature with a thermometer. They discuss the details of a thermometer and the calibrations used, record temperature data for inside and outside, explore weather websites, and calculate changes in temperatures.
Young scholars are introduced to the concept that weather can change daily and that weather patterns change over the seasons. They use video, experiments and observational skills to explore how the weather affects human lives.
Students participate in an outdoor activity in which they make direct but safe observations of the Sun. Students use a solar cell and voltmeter apparatus to collect data on the amount of DC voltage produced by the solar cell during a two-minute time period while watching cloud cover.
