Second graders use weather instruments to investigate weather attributes, gather and record data. In groups, they brainstorm items that can measure wind direction, temperature and precipitation. Students take temperatures in direct sunlight and then in the shade. They discuss reasons for the apparent discrepancy. After designing wind vanes, 2nd graders observe the vane and record wind directions.
Second graders explore weather. In this weather lesson plan, 2nd graders read Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs and participate in four supplemental science activities. Students participate in Internet research, create weather maps, illustrate pictures, and design a food pyramid.
