This packet is filled with weather fun! Not only is it jammed-packed with activities, it also has plenty of worksheets and printables to help students remember and visualize all the aspects available within this packet. It interwines science, ELA, creative writing, and math, all under the subject of weather. Some of the topics include:
1. The Water Cycle
2. Fun facts about weather
6. Tornadoes and hurricanes
...and so much more! Read on to delve into a couple of activities described in the packet:
Rain, rain, go away. Come again another day! Where does the rain come from and why does it change? To a young mind, questions are never answered fast enough! And how do we measure how hot or cold it is? Using all of these questions, help your students understand some basic facts about weather. Also, using a wonderful story by Shutta Crum called Thunder-Boomers, students can experience the weather as well as learning some fun weather vocabulary!
The water cycle, just as important as the weather! Why? Because without the water cycle, we would not have rain, snow, sleet, hail, or...well, hurricanes. The last one we could do without, but this is just a small introduction into the water cycle. It is a matching activity, followed by some cut and paste action! First, and foremost, the large visuals need to be used in order to explain a simple version of the water cycle. If the activity is used in a more gifted setting, use the terms such as percipitation, evaporation, condensation, infiltration (collection), otherwise, use the descriptions provided in the cut-out sheet.
