2 bar graphs for recording a month's worth of daily weather.
One includes the numbers along the side and a title prompt, "Weather Graph for..."
Students can fill in your town, the month, your zip code, etc.
The second does not include the numbers or the prompt so that students can practice making a graph.
Weather pics show sunny, cloudy, rainy, stormy, windy, icy and snowy. Even if you live where snow and ice do not usually occur, you can use this to talk about how where you live determines the clothing that you wear, the activities you engage in, and maybe even the foods you choose to eat. I live in OHIO so we use every one of these categories! We record the weather at the same time everyday to add "legitimacy" to our "data".
I use the completed graph for the first few months of school, then after we return from winter break, the children have to complete it on their own at the beginning of each month. I've also had years when the students have written the temperature in the block before shading it. I really stress that scientists and mathematicians work with "precision" and "neatness" so that others can understand their work.
I like to have the students compare two months at a time - especially months like March and April when weather can really be temperamental. I fill in a graph everyday, too. I hang mine in the room at the end of each month so that we have many months to compare by the end of the school year.
