Your students will love learning about the weather instruments and creating a flip-up booklet!
What should you wear today? Will it be warm or cold outside? Will it rain or snow? These are all questions that meteorologists help us answer. Meteorologists gather information about the weather using many different tools and weather instruments. They then make a forecast or prediction about what the weather will be like.
In this pack students will learn about five weather instruments:

There are 3 main activities in this activity pack:
Weather Instruments Vocabulary:
Introduce the 6 vocabulary weather instrument words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.
Next, have students read the informational articles about the 5 weather instruments and complete the comprehension and connection questions. Read about and meet Mr. Fahrenheit and Mr. Celsius to learn more about the different ways to measure temperature. You could have students work with a partner or in small groups or even as a center/station activity.
Have students complete the student activities and Weather Instruments Flip Up Booklet and build it page by page. I usually have them do one page at each center or station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the booklet. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12x18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover.
