PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you want to make your Science lessons come to life? Then this is the packet for you. This unit includes 15 hands-on activities that you could use while studying weather in your classroom.

This packet is different from most that you buy on TpT. Instead of giving you centers and activities to print, cut out, and laminate, this packet is full of hands-on activities that you can use with your students. I completed all of these in my first grade class and my students LOVED them. Not to mention, the parents were so excited that we did “so much Science!”

The packet is broken down by picture steps (to help you see what the experiment should look like,) and then I give you a “cheat sheet.” This black and white copy is for you to print out and have on hand when you are completing the experiment in your class.

I also include “grocery lists” for all of the activities. {How much do I hate when I get home and realize I forgot ONE item!!}

It also includes graphing activities, recording sheets, a cloud book, anchor chart ideas, and more!

Activities Include:

Rainbow Writing (craft)
Cloud in a Jar (experiment)
Rain in a Jar (experiment)
Cloud in a Microwave (experiment)
Rainbow Cloud in a Jar (experiment)
Tornadoes in a Jar (experiment)
Stratus Clouds (craft)
Cirrus Clouds (craft)
Cumulus Clouds (craft)
Cloud Book (writing)
Cloud Graph (graphing)
Weather Log (graphing)
Weather Bubble Map (writing)
Making Snow (experiment)
Water Cycle Wearable Art (craft)

This unit is aligned to the Science TEKS. It is not aligned to the Common Core because at this point there are not any Science standards for first grade.

Please download the preview to see some more of what is included in this unit!

I truly hope that you enjoy this pack and that you have FUN with these experiments, crafts, and activities!

Product Questions & Answers

On  March 26, 2014Shannon Beamon (TpT Seller) asked:
Hey! I just purchased this unit and have a question about how to make a cloud. I bought the Ivory soap (liquid) and "cooked" it. I tried different times, different plates and different amounts of soap, but was unsuccessful. What am I doing wrong? I know my kiddos will LOVE this, as soon as I can get it figured out!

Shannon- You need to use a bar of soap! :) That will fix all your problems! :)

On  June 17, 2013,  Buyer asked:
We were looking at your Science Overview and we want to buy your units. We were just confused on where a few of these lessons are (Day and Night, Seasons, etc.). We looked at the fall and plan to buy it, but is there something that has August themes as well?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  June 17, 2013Kristen Smith answered:
Hi! Thank you for your interest in my units! The Scope and Sequence that is on my blog is everything that I teach throughout the year. However, not all of the items on my "overview" are included in my packet. Day and Night is a brief mini lesson that I teach at the beginning of the year and it gets reinforced throughout the year especially during my Earth, Space, and Moon week. (These lessons will be out soon!) As for seasons, inside the packet there are a few lessons and activities and extensions about seasons. In the leaf rubbing lesson there are a few recording pages about trees during different times of the year and I also mention a few picture books that I use to teach this point! Winter, Spring, and Summer will all eventually have their own separate packets where students will explore those seasons through seasonal activities and experiments. As for August- most of what I teach is the basics of Science. We use many of my "Making Predictions" activities during this month. This helps students understand what a Scientist does and how we can be Scientists. I hope that helps clarify things. If you have any other questions, please ask!
