Use this lesson to have your students reflect daily on what your local weather is doing. Is it rainy? Is it snowing? Is it sunny? It is important to know what kind of weather you are having so that you can dress appropriately. I use this lesson with my special education class, as some of my students wear clothes that aren’t the best choice for the weather. We look at how the weather might change for the day, and how it might affect us!
Included is also a simple graph, which is meant to introduce students to the concept of graphing data over time. It includes two weeks’ worth of data entry, and at the end you can see if there are any connections between the weather outside, and what you would wear.
I’ve also included weather matching cards and a crossword for students as homework or just to review the concepts they have already learned!
