- This is a bundle that includes my Distance Learning Weather Unit and My Weather Printable Unit for third grade. These two resources are different have different activities but they address the same standards and cover the same topic. This Bundle is offered at a 20% discount.

Weather Unit for Third Grade. This online learning weather unit includes weather graphs, weather charts, reading passages on weather and climate, and Interactive slides all in Google Apps. Great for online Learning! Students will learn about weather and climate and will record data, make graphs, and answer questions.
Students will learn about climate and weather and hazards caused by extreme weather. They will evaluate a solution for its effectiveness to protect against damage from severe weather. This Weather and Climate unit is designed in Google Slides with a quiz in Google forms. Your students must have access to Google in order to use this resource. Some districts do not allow students to use Google. It is your responsibility to check and see if this is something you can use. You will be asked by TPT to add this unit to your Google Drive. You can select a personal drive or a school drive.
This resource will take about nine days to complete if you di every activity. A suggested schedule and the answer keys are included. This is a huge unit that addresses all three standards for third grade.
This resource is online and perfect for distance learning. If you are looking for a printable resource on the same topic please see Weather Unit Third Grade NGSS 3-ESS2-1 3-ESS2-2 3-ESS3-1
NGSS 3-ESS2-1. Represent data in tables and graphical displays to describe typical weather conditions expected during a particular season.
NGSS 3-ESS2-2. Obtain and combine information to describe climates in different regions of the world.
NGSS 3-ESS3-1. Make a claim about the merit of a design solution that reduces the impacts of a weather-related hazard.
And also Utah SEEd for Third Grade
Utah SEEd Standard 3.1.1 Analyze and interpret data to reveal that indicate typical weather conditions expected during a particular season. Emphasize students gathering data in a variety of ways and representing data in tables and graphs. Examples of data could include temperature, precipitation, or wind speed. (ESS2.D)
Standard 3.1.2 Obtain and communicate information to describe climate in different regions of the world. Emphasize how climate patterns can be used to predict typical weather conditions. Examples of climate patterns could be the average seasonal temperature and average seasonal precipitation. (ESS2.D)
Standard 3.1.3 Design a solution that reduces the of a weather-related hazard. Define the problem, identify criteria and constraints, develop possible solutions, analyze data from testing solutions, and propose modifications for optimizing a solution. Examples could include barriers to prevent flooding or wind-resistant roofs. (ESS3.B, ETS1.A, ETS1.B, ETS1.C)
This unit starts with phenomena and uses Science and Engineering Practices.
