I designed this activity to interest your students in a hands on way, but also to give them practice collecting and interpreting data. The short writing prompt at the end is a great practice for any non-fictional or science based writing they will have to do in the future (such as standardized testing :). It is also my hope that it will help your students become more familiar with understanding and identifying climate patterns on earth.
Keep in mind that this product was made as a part of a Weather Bundle. If you have enjoyed this activity, you may also like my study guide and assessment for these standards. I have a “Weather Unit Bundle” which includes individual tests, study guides and many other weather related resources available at my TPT store. Bundles can save you MONEY :)
As with all of my science based products, I have designed this to make your life easier. Simply print and go! Let me know if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions.
