UPDATED!!! NOW INCLUDES A FORECAST AND WIND SPEED ACTIVITY! COMPARE AND CONTRAST RESOURCES AND EDITS THROUGHOUT THE DOCUMENT!
The resources start with weather activities, then climate activities and finishes with hazardous weather activities. The weather section has worksheets and a quiz. The climate sections has worksheets and a poster project. Then there is an summative assessment on comparing and contrasting weather and climate. Hazardous weather is the last unit, there are worksheets and a poster project. The project describes the weather and students will come up with a creative solution on how to help people that experience the hazardous weather. Also, I provided many websites to explore. All pages have answer keys and projects come with 2 rubrics!
The following document aligns with NGSS for third grade.
