IF YOU LIKE SNOW, snowstorms, and weather, this lab is for you!
This activity is being submitted for an award evaluation through the National Science Foundation.
This activity and/or parts of this activity have been used across the board from elementary school, into middle school and high school, weather camps, and even general science education meteorology classes in college. The PLAY DOH part is a favorite in this lab and can even be used in my other weather activities using the maps present in this lab. What makes this lab awesome and fun for kids and exciting for teachers is that it covers so much material. It fuses together the following topics: storms, mid-latitude cyclones, fronts, air masses, precipitation types, temperature, humidity, air pressure, weather forecasting, television weather reports, and climate and seasonal weather changes.
There are many COLOR components of building storms, mapping storms, and connecting geography and storms on maps to what it would look like in real time.
This has been used successfully over and over again.
Cut and paste or Velcro and laminate for special education applications and alternative assessments.
Within the classroom, this activity has been consistently very successful and acclaimed by students in grades 6th – 10th within multiple types of schools - public, private, and charter.
This work has also been shared at workshops, in-services, and conferences.
Great feedback from parents, teachers, administrators, and curriculum field professionals.
Even used by teachers in New York State as a preparation for the Earth Science Grade 9 Regents Exam.
Our goal is your satisfaction! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will promptly assist you. Your feedback is very valuable to us as we strive to produce the highest quality products possible.
