Using Weather Reports In The LCTL Classroom
Students use authentic weather reports in order to investigate the processes involved in the creation of types of weather. They practice using key words for vocabulary. Then students analyze the weather reports and convey the information to the rest of the class.
Fourth graders generate an oral presentation on the weather. In this weather lesson, 4th graders watch the weather for a week and record the data on a chart. Students give a weather report at the end of the week.
Flipping Over Our Weather Reports
Students create their own weather report. In this weather instructional activity, students work in groups to predict the weather for three days and create their own video. They have a director, camera-person, still cameraman, and two weathermen.
Students define and practice pronouncing basic German vocabulary related to weather, investigate current weather reports in various German cities, examine cultural difference of metric usage, and share findings with classmates by role playing meteorologists.
Positive Weather Reports
In this weather report worksheet, students complete a weather report on their favorite season in a group. Students observe and evaluate, complete a table for the report, and present it in a group.
Weather Report Chart
Students complete a weather report chart after studying weather patterns for a period of time. For this weather report lesson, students measure temperature, precipitation, cloud cover, wind speed, and wind direction for a month. Students chart and graph weather data as well as analyze the data using mathematical formulas.
Students locate a weather map on the internet and explain or predict the weather for the following day. Students interpret the information on the weather map and pick the correct clothing to wear for that day. Students chart and graph the weather for a daily weather report. Adaptations for different age groups are included.
Forecast the Weather
Learners, in groups, write scripts and perform "live" weather reports from "actual" sites where extreme weather or natural disasters are occurring. They choose from hurricanes, blizzards, tornados, and earthquakes. They videotape their reports using props, etc.
Weather: You Like It or Not
Students explore the importance of and flaws in weather prediction, and prepare their own weather report on a specific type of storm.
Severe Winter Weather
Learners, in groups, investigate and demonstrate the science behind the development and characteristics of winter storms by creating a weather report.
Reading Functional Weather Sight Words
Sight words, word recognition, and flash card drills are the mode for teaching that is outlined here. To increase weather vocabulary and content specific word recognition, kids with special needs work through flash card drills. The teacher chooses several weather words out of a weather report, uses them to create flashcards, then drills the learners until they can identify them correctly. They then attempt to identify each word in context.
Third graders practice making predictions about weather from conditions they observe on weather instruments and weather reports. Learners are introduced to the most basic weather reporting instruments: the thermometer, the wind vane, the anemometer, the barometer, and the rain gauge. An excellent hands-on activity is embedded in the plan, along with terrific activities.
Third graders make predictions about weather and utilize weather instruments and weather reports. They match weather components with weather instruments, and demonstrate how to read a thermometer. Students also construct and use a wind vane and read and summarize weather reports.
Temperature and Hours of Daylight
Fourth graders keep a record of the daily high and low temperatures and times of sunrise and sunset for three to four weeks. This information can be found in the newspaper, weather reports or on the Internet. The information is analyzed and conclusions are drawn about weather trends.
An Iñupiat Weather Report
Students communicate in the Inupiat language using weather related vocabulary, numbers, and days of the week. They prepare a weather forecast and present it as if they were on a television news program. The forecast must be entirely in the Inupiat language.
Forecast the Weather
Students become weather reporters. In this weather forecast lesson, students watch forecasts and discuss what the reporter focused on. They create their own weather forecast as if they are a reporter in the eye of the storm.
Measuring and Recording Weather
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.
Environment: Inupiat Weather Expertise
Students investigate methods of weather prediction prior to modern communication sources. A local elder lectures the class on weather prediction and safety. They document the experience by creating posters. Applying methods given by the guest speaker, they keep weather journals of the daily conditions and their predictions. Working in groups, they create local weather reports in the Inupiat language.
Young scholars conduct Internet research of their community's weather and compare it to the weather in another location. After conducting research, students become weather reporters by reporting their findings to the class by using a microphone and a U.S. map as a backdrop.
On the Move
Students explore different pathways and consequences of pollutant transport via the weather and water cycles. They observe and record weather information and produce their own weather report for the class.
