Why Lesson Planet?
Use pictures and manipulatives to develop vocabulary with your beginning language learners. This plan can be used with foreign language learners (although you'll have to provide the vocabulary), English language learners, or a young language arts class. They practice describing weather by examining different items related to weather such as a coat, umbrella, and scarf, and then practice telling their classmates what the weather is like in the target language. The class members create a weather mini-book including drawings of the different seasons and weather activities.
