March Weather: My March Weather Journal is a booklet that was created for a fun and engaging March activity that integrates the skills of predicting, understanding and using weather words, writing, basic calendar skills, counting, comparing numbers, and graphing. Students will observe and keep track of the weather each day to test the old saying, “In like a lion, out like a lamb. In like a lamb, out like a lion.” They will complete a journal entry each day and at the end of the month, graph the number of lion and lamb days and use the data to write a description for the weather in March. This activity is great for morning work, center time, “I am finished my work” time, or warm-up to ELA scheduled time. You will see upside down pages in this booklet because the booklet was created so it is EASY for you to make for each of your students. Simply copy the booklet pages front to back and fold in half. Staple along the folded edge. Done! No “put together” hassle.
