First graders will have a blast using this 7 day weather chart to record the daily high and low temperatures, as well as using a word bank to complete a weather sentence.
This activity worked well for me using the website weather.com, or any other weekly weather site. Students were idenpendently able to record the information for all 7 days in about 30 minutes. Students love putting in their own zip code, and studying what their own upcoming weather would be.
This activity matches first and second grade science standards.
In this activity:
Students will understand that there are different types of weather.
Different types of weather have different characteristics.
Weather data can be recorded.
Identify different types of weather and the characteristics of each type.
Investigate weather by recording weather data (temperature, precipitation, sky conditions, and weather events) in a periodic journal or on a calendar.
Correlate weather data (temperature, precipitation, sky conditions, and weather events) to seasonal changes.
