This weather and temperature graphing activity can be used daily to track weather patterns over an entire month.

Students can either color in or draw a picture on their weather graph everyday (pictograph or bar graph) . Students can also track the temperature each day for the month(line or bar graph). I usually use the high of the day, but you could also track the current temperature at the time you do this activity each day. I have a classroom "meteorologist" who looks up the weather each day and then leads the class on the Smart Board while the students complete their own.

Each sheet is meant for the entire month with reflection questions at the end of the month for students to notice weather patterns. I have also included a sheet for year-long graphing and reflection. This page will have students use basic addition as well as comparing numbers to find greatest/least or most frequent/least frequent.

This resource includes:

Monthly Weather Graphing (pictograph or bar graph)( (color and b/w)

Monthly Temperature Graphing (line or bar graph) (color and b/w)

Year-long tracking of high/low of each month and most/least frequent type of weather

Year-long tracking of number of each type of weather in each month

NGSS4-ESS2-1
Make observations and/or measurements to provide evidence of the effects of weathering or the rate of erosion by water, ice, wind, or vegetation. Examples of variables to test could include angle of slope in the downhill movement of water, amount of vegetation, speed of wind, relative rate of deposition, cycles of freezing and thawing of water, cycles of heating and cooling, and volume of water flow. Assessment is limited to a single form of weathering or erosion.
NGSS3-ESS2-1
Represent data in tables and graphical displays to describe typical weather conditions expected during a particular season. Examples of data could include average temperature, precipitation, and wind direction. Assessment of graphical displays is limited to pictographs and bar graphs. Assessment does not include climate change.
NGSSK-ESS2-1
Use and share observations of local weather conditions to describe patterns over time. Examples of qualitative observations could include descriptions of the weather (such as sunny, cloudy, rainy, and warm); examples of quantitative observations could include numbers of sunny, windy, and rainy days in a month. Examples of patterns could include that it is usually cooler in the morning than in the afternoon and the number of sunny days versus cloudy days in different months. Assessment of quantitative observations limited to whole numbers and relative measures such as warmer/cooler.
