Thank you for your interest in: What's The Weather? A Weather tracking resource in BOTH paper and Remote Ready format!
Our products are designed to coordinate with fun holidays throughout the year. This packet is designed to begin a new school year,a new calendar year, or to celebrate National Weather Persons Day, February 5th.
It also pairs nicely with any Science studies of Weather!
You can use it for a week, a month or a year!
The Paper Version contains black and white weather icons as well as color icons for your individual preference. I have included calendar chart sized icons for use if you wish to display the chosen weather of the day. You could also have older learners draw their own icons directly onto the pages. I tried to include as may weather conditions as possible. If you have a unique condition in your ares not included, please email me : homeschoolholiday @ gmail.com and I will create one for you at no additional charge.
I included "earthquake" with the icons tornado, hurricane, and blizzard. I realize that Earthquake is NOT a weather condition, however, if tracking conditions for an entire year, it's a "biggie" and unique to have a record of should it occur similar to those bigger weather events.
I have included calendars for weather recording for 1 week, 2 weeks, and monthly. There are also activities should you continue to record the weather all year. For the weekly weather calendars, there are 2 versions: simple, record the weather, and then record the weather and predict the next 3 days.
This activity does not TEACH the weather related terms, it is simply a way to log the daily weather and then see in general terms, what the weather is like for the year by graphing it. When using it at a base level, learners can decide what partly cloudy, vs cloudy mean, or you can clarify for them officially.
I chose to include icons for nighttime weather related terms. When recording scientifically, you should do so at the same time each day, and depending on your location around the globe, and your schedule, my day, may be your night! Alaska for example has some pretty long periods of darkness at certain times of the year.
My last FUN idea for using this activity is to use the WEEK or 2 WEEK version and chart the weather from your city as well as different cities around the globe. Pick the same time every day in class to look up the weather together for several cities - then predict the weather for THOSE cities.You'll have a room of junior meteorologists in no time!
The Digital version includes "simplified" choices for tracking the weather, and only the color icons. You can see them in the pictures provided. Students Drag and Drop the daily weather onto the calendar. This version contains pre-dated calendars that work GREAT, especially considering you are not face to face with students. It also opens up use with YOUNGER students and they just cover the date with the icon!
