Tracking the Weather

Students observe weather patterns. In this weather instructional activity, students track weather trends and predict what the weather might be like in the upcoming forecast.  Students learn to apply concepts of barometric pressure and how weather may be affected. Students are then given random cards and expected to predict what a weather might be like given different conditions.

I have been told by seasoned educators not to "re-invent the wheel" when coming up with ideas for lessons. So true!! Lesson Planet has a wealth of sources and ideas from some of the greatest teaching minds that are out there...what a blessing to have a resource such as Lesson Planet, to turn to. I am even planning to contribute a lesson or two myself. My daughter is in a teacher education program and I have introduced her to the "Planet". We're spreading the news!
