Science: Weather Last week we started our science unit on weather. We will be learning all about weather and how the role it plays in our lives. We will be recording the weather each day and graphing it at the end of our unit. Our class will be looking a several non fiction books about weather as well as reading stories that revolve around the weather. They are very excited to learn all they can about weather. I would love for them to bring in to school anything that they find about weather. Such as weather stories, weather maps, and weather pictures.
S1E1. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate weather data to identify weather patterns. a. Represent data in tables and/or graphs to identify and describe different types of weather and the characteristics of each type. b. Ask questions to identify forms of precipitation such as rain, snow, sleet, and hailstones as either solid (ice) or liquid (water). c. Plan and carry out investigations on current weather conditions by observing, measuring with simple weather instruments (thermometer, wind vane, rain gauge), and recording weather data (temperature, precipitation, sky conditions, and weather events) in a periodic journal, on a calendar, and graphically. d. Analyze data to identify seasonal patterns of change. (Clarification statement: Examples could include temperature, rainfall/snowfall, and changes to the environment.)
