PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Challenge your students to show you what they have learned about weather measurement by having them design and build a device that measures at least two different weather phenomena in this critical thinking assessment activity.

The challenge includes teacher instructions and a student task page. Student planning pages (for individuals and groups), self-assessment pages (for individuals and groups), and a marking guide are included. Hints for marking strategies are included with examples. The "answers" about how to build each of the devices are not included as it will better foster creativity to let students build on their own.

This product has been classroom tested with several groups of different fifth grade students. It kept them VERY busy and challenged them. It was also messy, so be prepared to have a full afternoon for building and presenting.

It also comes with a handout of weather instruments (with both metric and Imperial measurements) and a short quiz for students.

This product is included in Weather- Bundle- All of Our Weather Resources where you can save 25%!
