This is a fun activity that I use to introduce weather. I created a scavenger hunt that works best with the New York Times Weather section. The Times has a detailed section on weather such as sun rise/ sunset/ moon phases, weather in different countries, ocean temperature, air temperature. etc. There are over 30 questions and students write a forecast for the United States based on these questions.
Generally I make photocopies of the weather section for each individual student. They can highlight and label their weather maps as they are completing the scavenger hunt.
