Young scholars examine a poster of Brown v. Board of Education and discuss what the important details are. They read the story behind the poster and court case. They role play different sections of the case such as the court case or Linda Brown's walk from home to school.
Students identify and interpret the function, usefulness or utitlity, form, beauty or aesthetics, and meaning, context or story, of objects and how they learn new skills and make things that they learn traditionally, by observation and imitation, in everyday life from people around them. They also identify who indigenous teachers are and how they affect them.
Students use similar triangles to solve a real-world problem.  In this geometry lesson, students explore properties of ratios and proportion as used in similar triangles and use proportions to determine the indirect height of an object. 
In this online/interactive comprehensive quiz worksheet, students read the book Julie the Rockhound and answer specific questions about it. Students choose 10 multiple choice questions.
Students pretend the area they live in is subject to wind, waves and rain. In groups, they pretend they are a groups of meteorologists or geologists and are to report on the weather and damage that could occur there. Each group develops a news report to present their findings to the class.
Students build set of weather instruments (anemometer, wind vane, and rain gauge) and use them to collect weather data over a period of two weeks. They compare the data collected form the home-made instruments to commercially-made models.
Students predict and hypothesize the reasons for wind movement. After viewing a video, they describe the effects of a high and low pressure system and what makes the wind blow. In groups, they construct instruments that measure air pressure and wind speed. They graph and analyze their data through daily observations.
Students examine how engineers utilize the wind.  In this wind lesson students examine the different kinds of winds and measure wind direction. 
Learners observe and talk about wind using no weather instruments. In this wind lesson plan, students use their senses to observe wind. They also interview an Elder about wind.
Students identify measurable characteristics about the weather and explore how they are monitored. They research and propose the construction of a weather monitoring station on their school grounds.
Second graders explore all facets of the weather, such as the weather cycle, how weather changes, how to read a thermometer, etc.
Students investigate air movement by constructing a windmill or a weathervane. In this physics instructional activity, students measure the speed of the air using their windmills and determine the direction the wind is blowing with their weathervane. Data is collected and reviewed as a whole class.
Learners investigate what tools to use, how to use them and how to use them safely in order to complete an investigation in science. In this lesson, the teacher will help students practice this skill.
Students predict the amount of snowfall for the week and measure snowfall.  In this measuring snowfall lesson, student use a precipitation gauge to measure the week's snowfall; and analyze the data to determine whether or not the predictions were accurate. Separate templates provided for grades K-2 and 3-4. 
Pupils research the history of American Folk Art, as evidenced in weathervanes and whirligigs. They compare and contrast the traditional examples they find with their more modern drawings. They then recognize and apply math terms such as diagonal, parallel, and perpendicular.
Students discuss daily weather change, that we live in a world of symbols and innovations. They recognize the use of symbols to replace language and the value of technological innovation to improving our lives.
Students research weather information, decide on weather elements, create weather symbols, and prepare their poster board. They also identify specific weather symbols on a weather map in order to complete a worksheet on symbols.
Students create their own barometer, precipitation, rain gauge, anemometer, and more with their weather stations. In this weather station lesson plan, students access on line websites on how to make their own weather tools.
Students explore weather conditions. In this weather lesson, students maintain a graph of the daily temperature for two weeks and create simple weather instruments to help them learn more about weather conditions.
In this weather activity packet, 1st graders will read a weather rebus, learn about weather tools, play a weather game, read about and draw clouds, experiment with rain puddles, unscramble weather words and write a weather wish.
