Study meteorological concepts by gathering and interpreting data behind daily weather phenomena!

Develop data collection and interpretation skills while discovering scientific concepts that help explain real-world weather happenings. Weather lesson plans allow students to start by modeling temperatures on adjustable thermometers and collecting daily temperature data, then work their way up to graphically representing data in tables and charts. They'll become proficient meteorologists as they use learned knowledge to make weather reports, predict weather patterns, and present their findings in various formats. As actual weather comes to pass, they can test their hypotheses and analyze results to determine what worked and what didn't. Blend math with science as students plot weather data by season, compare shadow lengths, construct sundials, and even predict seasonal changes based on Earth's position relative to the Sun. Instruction takes up to 5 hours to complete. Lab activities are designed to extend throughout the school year. Kit includes full-color instructor's guide, reproducible student worksheets, and experiment materials for 24 students working in groups of 4. Full contents list below. Recommended for Elementary.
