Here's my unit for temperature and month that I'm sure you'll enjoy! It's full of great activities you can do with any primary class, although I designed this product to be used with a Grade 1/2 class.
Title Page – If you decide to make the calendar sheets into a booklet, like I do, use this page as the title page. Students can colour and print the title and their name.
Clues from the Calendar – Students answer questions about a calendar showing the month of May.
Temperature Tracker – Students track the temperature outdoors over the course of a week. Can be used in both C and F.
Temperature Quiz – Students draw the temperature on the thermometer (C).
Temperature Quiz – Students draw the temperature on the thermometer (F).
What’s the Temperature – Students circle the temperature that the picture could show. For example, swimming at the beach would be 30C, not OC.
What’s the Temperature – Students write the temperature that each thermometer shows.
Math Journal: All About Temperature – Students draw a temperature of their choice on the thermometer and write about that temperature using guiding questions.
Month Order – Students fill in the blanks to write the months in the correct order.

Math Journal: Looking at a Calendar – Students look at a calendar and write about it, using questions as a guide to their writing.
Reading a Calendar – Students look at a calendar for August and answer simple questions.
Exploring Time – Students match equal amounts of time (ex. 7 days is 1 week)

Math Journal: Calendar Questions – Students fill out a blank calendar and think of questions they could ask about their calendar.
Days of the Week & Seasons Order – Students put the seasons and days of the week in the correct order.
Seasons & Temperature – Students put the seasons in the correct order, draw a temperature that is typical of that season on the thermometer, and colour the tree to match the season.

Math Journal: When is your birthday? – Students look at a calendar to figure out when their birthday is this year and write about how they figured it out.

January to December Worksheets – 12 worksheets that can be used individually at the beginning of each month, stapled together as a booklet, or used throughout your unit. Each worksheet asks students how many days are in that month, circle the weather of the month, the month order, the special days of the month and practice printing the word.
The Months and Seasons Reader – Simple reader for K-2 students. One page for each month and a picture to colour. You can photocopy 2 pages onto 1 sheet or leave as is for a larger book. The font is dot font so students can practice their printing.
