PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson is compatible with the Kindergarten Next Generation Science standard* K-ESS2-1, Earth and Space Science 2: Earth’s Systems. Students will be able to “[u]se and share observations of local weather conditions to describe patterns over time.”

This lesson teaches students how to make weather observations with a focus on the wind. The hands-on projects teaches the student how to make and use an anemometer. The student will then use that anemometer, along with a thermometer and compass to make observations of the weather over a 7-day period. They will record their data on a data sheet and interpret their data by answering questions when their observations are complete.

The lesson also explores the difference between weather and climate with a discussion on biomes and the different temperature and rainfall over large areas. The student will discuss the AVERAGE temperature of the biome in which they live before moving on to complete the more detailed, daily weather observation described above.
