This learning menu is designed around the 4th grade weather SOL: 4.6 The student will investigate and understand how weather conditions and phenomena occur and can be predicted. Key concepts include
a) weather phenomena;
b) weather measurements and meteorological tools; and
c) use of weather measurements and weather phenomena to make weather predictions.
This weather unit includes several activities for students to choose from (all customizable). Students have to create a weather book using the vocabulary learned in the unit. They then have the option to complete 3 of the following activities: constructing and playing 2 types of folder games, creating a quiz, completing a web quest, creating a song, watching a video w/worksheet, constructing clouds with cotton balls, making a crossword puzzle, playing a weather game with worksheet, or creating some acrostic poems. I have even included my own portaportal site to access the websites that some of these activities require.
