Do your students have what it takes to join the Groundhog Weather School?

In this Groundhog Day science activity, students learn the basics of weather, create their own rain gauge (if you don't have one), and record weather data over a set period of time. They write a letter with their results to send back to the Groundhog Weather School.

The Scientific Method:

Students follow the six step scientific method (Purpose, Research, Hypothesis, Experiment, Analysis, Conclusion) to learn about weather and record data. You can use this activity to record data over one week or up to six weeks.

Literacy Integration:

This activity is the perfect companion to Groundhog Weather School by Joan Holub.

Writing Extension:

After students complete the groundhog weather science experiment, they write a letter with their results to the groundhog weather school.

Aligns with NGSS and Common Core.

Includes:

  • Teacher and Student Instructions (With Photo)
  • Student Planning Pages
  • Student Reflection Pages
  • Science Journal
  • Vocabulary (Atmosphere, Precipitation, Weather, Meteorology, Meteorologist, Forecast)
  • Writing Extension Activity
  • NGSS and Common Core Standards

Material List:

  • Rain Gauge or Plastic Bottle with Ruler
  • Thermometer
  • Pencils
  • Groundhog Weather School by Joan Holub (Recommended)

Amazing resource for STEM club, STEM teachers, elementary librarians, parents who love hands-on learning, and elementary teachers who want to create a hands-on educational environment in their classroom! Perfect for introducing weather.

NGSSK-ESS3-2
Ask questions to obtain information about the purpose of weather forecasting to prepare for, and respond to, severe weather. Emphasis is on local forms of severe weather.
NGSS3-ESS2-1
Represent data in tables and graphical displays to describe typical weather conditions expected during a particular season. Examples of data could include average temperature, precipitation, and wind direction. Assessment of graphical displays is limited to pictographs and bar graphs. Assessment does not include climate change.
NGSSK-ESS2-1
Use and share observations of local weather conditions to describe patterns over time. Examples of qualitative observations could include descriptions of the weather (such as sunny, cloudy, rainy, and warm); examples of quantitative observations could include numbers of sunny, windy, and rainy days in a month. Examples of patterns could include that it is usually cooler in the morning than in the afternoon and the number of sunny days versus cloudy days in different months. Assessment of quantitative observations limited to whole numbers and relative measures such as warmer/cooler.
Provide a concluding statement or section related to the opinion presented.
Link opinion and reasons using words and phrases (e.g., for instance, in order to, in addition).
