Introducing, Observing, Recording

  • "Meteorologists in Training" Anchor Chart Headings (what we know, what we think we need to know, new facts, weather vocabulary).
  • "Official Meteorologist" Visual Vocabulary - 18 weather related words including a variety of tools to measure wind, temperature and precipitation
  • Weather Calendar - Students record the weather daily using symbols on a calendar (blank calendar given to be able to use in any month!).
  • Weather Graph - Graph the days of the month by which type of weather is present (sunny, rainy, cloudy, windy, stormy, snowy, calm).
  • 2nd Grade Weather Reports with Word Banks: Temperature (cold, cool, warm, hot), Wind Conditions, Cloud Coverage and Precipitation
  • 2nd Grade Weather Graphs
  • Sketch to Show the Weather Words

Describe - Writing Craftivity

  • Discuss: Teaching slides included with questions prompt students in partner discussion about their favorite weather.
  • Using Your Senses: Students brainstorm what they know about their favorite weather using a graphic organizer (how the air feels, what I see, what I hear, what I wear, what activities I can do).
  • My Favorite Weather Writing: Using a full page with handwriting lines, students describe their favorite weather.
  • Illustrating Weather: Students draw their favorite weather on a page with them as the weather reporter.

Report & Record the Weather Around the Room

  • Two options: print real world photographs and post around the room for students to record OR have them access the photographs through QR codes! Students simply scan and view the image in Google Drive. Students practice recognizing different types of weather: sunny, rainy, stormy, foggy, snowy, windy
  • Recording page and answer key included!

Air & Wind Activities

  • Photograph Sort: Sort 18 photos by which one of the four main ideas given they demonstrate about air or wind. Students will recognize the power of wind, how air can be evident, how things need wind or air to work and the tools used to measure or show the direction of wind.
  • All About Air Booklet: Super easy to assemble (simply print front and back, students can cut and put the page number in order) and gives basic facts and riddles about air and wind!
  • Evidence that Wind is Moving Air Graphic Organizer: Students list ways they can see the effects of moving air.
  • Predict and Investigate: Students predict and test if certain objects will move with the force of wind. A page with blanks is also given for students that finish early and want to test other objects in the classroom!
  • All About Air & Wind Writing: Students create a mini book to write all they have learned about air and wind!

Review Fun!

  • Mind Readers Game - Students try to read the mind of their partners using clues to review weather, wind and air.
