What's the Weather?

Okay, here it is, the weather science booklet that the kids made during our weather unit. Each day we learned about a different type of weather & made a page to illustrate the weather type. 

Here is the cover, kinda boring...GOTTA fix this!

Sunny: they had to trace a circle and then add tissue paper to represent that the sun is made of fire.

Cloudy: they had to trace a cloud shape & then add cotton balls.

Rainy: they had to trace & cut out a gray cloud. Then, they added fingerprint raindrops.

Snowy: they had to trace & cut a snow cloud. Then, they added Q-tip snowflakes. Of course, we added glitter just like with the winter tree!

Rainbow: This page was pre-drawn & all they had to do was watercolor paint it. We talked out the color order of the rainbow during the lesson.
This is another unit that I love to teach. We also go outside everyday to see what the weather is. Luckily, this week, we had every type of weather except snowy! The kids really had a good time learning about why we have each type of weather & how we get each type of weather.

What a great way for them to study the weather. My Kinders always confuse weather with seasons. So, this is a wonderful method to get them to distinguish! Thanks for sharing!

Wow! What a great way for them to learn about the weather. My Kinders continuously confuse weather with the seasons. So, this a wonderful way for them to distinguish between the two. Thanks for sharing!
