Science – Weather Resources

We are trying to make the most of our summer and since learning is one of our favorite things to do together, we’ve been taking advantage of the sunny summer days by observing and learning about clouds.
Water Cycle Maze from Science Notebooking, Teaching, and Technology
This may seem a little on the young side but I thought it might be a good filler or morning work activity. Students have to complete the maze (I would make them label it as well) and then color.
SMMART SCIENCE: “Cloudy, Cloudy Day” Cloud Categorizer from Smmart Ideas
I found a really cool cloud identification “weather window” on www.nature-watch.com. Being the frugal lady that I am, instead of buying this handy-dandy hand-held devise of wonder…we made our own Cloud Categorizer.
I have always used some kind of weather graph in my classrooms. They’re a great way to teach children math and science skills, as well as critical thinking. Plus, the kiddos always seem to enjoy being a “weather reporter”! I thought I’d take a moment to share how I used my preschool weather chart in the classroom.

Water Cycle from F is for First Grade
After studying the water cycle we wrapped it up by making bracelets to remind us of each stage in the cycle. You may have seen these bracelets before but I hadn’t until I saw my teaching neighbor, Jodi, making them, she’s always got good ideas.
