This weather research project is perfect for learning about weather in your classroom. This research project allows your students to conduct research and use that research to write about weather. This research project is designed to be done whole group and individually. The research can be done whole group with the learning recorded on class charts and students then use that information to complete their research journal. I have included everything you need to make class charts and research journals. After completing this unit, your students will be weather experts! Included with each type of weather is a writing piece, or a science experiment or art project. The art projects are purposefully vague so that your students can create their own works of art without patterns, which provides a more authentic learning experience!
