This is a one day lesson on the differences between climate and weather, why it rains, and even offers a fun and creative activity that challenges students to predict the weather in certain regions of the United States!
Attached in the zip file you will find a power point, 5 worksheets, and a written lesson plan. Everything is saved in a format in which you can edit it! When going through the power point, be sure to differentiate between climate and weather, and explain why it rains and what causes rain. Each worksheet is to be given to a different group. In groups, the students will perform a newscast predicting the weather for their specified region of the U.S!
Note: When going through the powerpoint, STOP once you get to the slides with pictures of the different regions of the U.S. They are added so that the newscasters can point to them when predicting the weather!
