This weather science project will give your students the power of choice as well as hands-on experience in observing, recording data and presenting scientific findings.
I created this project to culminate a 4th grade unit on weather. Students are give two project choices: they may build their own weather instrument and record data gathered from that instrument for 7 days or they may research a form of severe weather and create a PowerPoint presentation on their topic. With either choice, students are required to present their findings in an oral report given to the class on the due date.
This download includes:
A student sheet with the project choices listed.
A rubric that can be used to aid in grading.
An observation form (for Choice A only)
Please let me know if you have any questions or comments! I also welcome your feedback!
