Weather Lesson

April is a Month of crazy weather, there are days were its beautiful and sunny, the next its snowing. I have used this month to introduce a weather lesson. We discuss anything from types of clouds and what they  predict in the weather to extreme weather!

Creating a Weather Chart

Step one: add a fun way to introduce and trace weather.  I create a Weather Calendar by taking a old cork board or whiteboard and label it with the days of the week and a space above to write or stick the month and year.  Then use velcro dots to add the days in the month. The start tracking. I have could some weather pictures with the weather word labeled on it. I use these to add the weather words into my morning meeting time.

CHARTS AND GRAPHS: Adding Math to Weather 

From the weather calendar  graph the results of the calendar to a graph and use that to describe what was most, the least, and use that data to predict what the next month will look like.
