Learners are taught that precipitation comes in many different forms such as rain, freezing rain, sleet, snow, or hail. They research when and why different forms of precipitation fall in temperate climates. Students demonstrate their knowledge of precipitation forms by creating a chart to show weather and temperature conditions.
Students demonstrate the steps of evaporation, cloud formation, and precipitation within the water cycle. They make and demonstrate how to use a hygrometer to record daily humidity and describe how rain, snow, and sleet form.
Second graders explain the definition of hail and sleet. In this precipitation lesson, 2nd graders discuss when hail and sleet fall and the results of hail falling.
New Review Understanding Weather
A succinct set of slides covers the main points for your weather unit. From the factors that contribute to conditions, to fronts and extreme occurrences, to the different types of clouds, numerous facts are listed in bullets. The only issue is that many of the images need to be replaced with crisper versions. Otherwise, your class will become weather wise with this PowerPoint!
In this weather worksheet, students explain how temperature affects the humidity in weather. Then they complete a chart about the different types of clouds seen in the sky. Students also describe how clouds form and why.
In this weather worksheet, students conduct an experiment where they record the weather observations for a week. Then they determine the air pressure using an aneroid barometer and estimate the amount of sky covered by clouds. Students also explain the relationship between low barometric pressure and the presence of clouds and precipitation.
Learners engage in a activity which explores the wate cycle. They get to see some very entertaining video, do fun hands-on activities and gain a better understanding of evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection.
The water cycle is a fascinating process! Introduce young scientists to the water cycle using a colorful worksheet. Complete with "before reading," "during reading," and "after reading" questions, this presents the water cycle to elementary schoolers through engaging graphics, detailed vocabulary, and a short reading. As a final activity, learners research and write about evaporation, precipitation, or condensation and share their findings with classmates.
Learners construct a model of the hydrologic cycle, and observe that water is an element of a cycle in the natural environment. They explain how the hydrologic cycle works and why it is important, and compare the hydrologic cycle to other cycles found in nature. This is one of the most thoroughly thought-through, one-period lesson plans I've ever come across!
In this weather worksheet, students read a detailed information sheet about different kinds of clouds and what weather they bring. Students answer 12 questions
Fourth graders participate in an activity which introduces them to common types of precipitation. They examine "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" through a teacher read aloud and make a weather pamphlet.
Fourth graders investigate the different types of precipitation and conduct a hail experiment. They identify the types of precipitation during a slideshow, and define key vocabulary terms. Next, in small groups they follow the directions on a lab sheet and create hail using beakers, ice, salt, and thermometers.
Third graders read a map. For this map interpretation lesson, 3rd graders review precipitation map symbols and complete a worksheet where they identify the weather in various parts of the United States.
Students, in groups, investigate and demonstrate the science behind the development and characteristics of winter storms by creating a weather report.
Students brainstorm and define five terms for precipitation, discuss reasons why English language includes various terms for wet weather, and create word games such as jumbles, word searches, or crossword puzzles with weather terms.
Seventh graders research about their assigned type of precipitation. In this earth science instructional activity, 7th graders determine the necessary conditions that produce those forms of precipitation. They complete a graphic organizer and share findings with the class.
Students determine how to read and record weather data. They use maps, legends, graphs, charts and lists. They read a Washington Post article entitled, "Hi, Sky: How Weather Works."
Students discuss and interpret background knowledge on poster copy given on the water cycle. Students complete the included activity sheets using the poster as a reference in small groups. Students identify and name where water can be found on Earth. Students identify the process by which water moves from the surface of plants to the atmosphere. Students also identify how groundwater is used by people.
In this vocabulary worksheet, 4th graders select a word from the word box to match each of seven clues. They fill in the blanks to tell the antonym of three words. Students are challenged to write a riddle using a vocabulary word. They answer two questions about a paragraph included on the worksheet.
Young scholars explore the weather system by analyzing water properties. In this precipitation lesson plan, students review weather related vocabulary terms and discuss how rainbows are created by light hitting droplets at the right time. Young scholars conduct a rainbow experiment by utilizing an electric kettle, cotton balls, mirrors and other household objects.
