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.
Pupils 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 young scholars. 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.
Students 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 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 learning exercise, students fill in the blank of 4 statements about the different tools scientists use to measure weather. This learning exercise is a graphic organizer.
Students investigate weather and how parts of a system work together.  In this weather activity 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 instructional 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.
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. 
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.
Students 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.
Students build a working weather station. In this weather forecasting lesson, students build a working weather station and collect data over the course of a week. Students also collect actual weather data from newspapers or online resources to compare with their findings.
Students 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.
Students observe weather conditions and discover weather-related concepts and phenomena in their immediate environment. They go on a weather walk and scavenger hunt.
Fifth and sixth graders engage in a series of activities which show them the importance of using different types of measurement strategies. One of the primary goals of the lesson is to show learners that measurement is helpful in many areas of real life. Area and perimeter are two of the measurements which are focused on the most. Some outstanding worksheets are included in this plan.
