We've just completed our weather unit and we've tried some really neat things! We recorded the weather each day for a week.
We wrote "weather words" in our journals and even illustrated the pictures.
One of my students gave me these wonderful weather wheels for Christmas. We colored the wheels and put them together, then used them in our circle time weather watching activities.
The publishers over at Scholastic's "Clifford The Big Red Dog" preschool classroom magazines sent us a class supply of the weather issue to try out. We used them as a small group activity, reading together and doing the activity on the back. We especially enjoyed the rainbow, as we've been learning about the colors that comprise a rainbow. Thank you, "Clifford The Big Red Dog" magazine, and especially, Janice, for sharing these with us! We really enjoyed them!
We tried some really cool experiments to simulate weather and cloud processes. This experiment allowed use to see how clouds fill and then rain falls.
This experiment helped us "see" condensation and rain.
We made some cloud murals after reading "It Looked Like Spilt Milk".
We found a way to incorporate some movement in with our weather activities. The teacher calls out a weather word, and the students have to "be the weather"!
Here are some of our favorite weather themed books:
