Children explore the wonders of weather with these interactive mini-books and manipulatives that feature simple text and realistic art. They’ll learn about where the weather takes place, how thunderstorms, hurricanes, and tornadoes form, how meteorologists measure weather, and so much more! Teacher pages include background information, easy how-tos, extension activities, and print and Web resources. A great way to introduce children to science and nonfiction!
Work with students to generate a list of the different states of the atmosphere, or weather. The list could include words such as hot, warm, cool, cold, windy, clear, cloudy, rainy, sunny, snowy, and so on. Once a day for a week, have students look out the windows and describe the weather outside using the list of words!
