We started our weather unit 2 weeks ago. So far, we've covered the seasons, tools that measure different types of weather, temperature and wind.
Here are my favorite books for our wind lessons.
We made this anchor chart to help us describe the wind, since we record weather data each day. It's not exactly fancy (and I might have to remake one with the fancy kind of scrapbook paper that I love), but it gives us something to refer to as we record our data. We added the senses part, because we were working on writing a poem about wind. The students wanted to include the senses that we use to sense wind on our chart.
Weather related vocabulary is a big part of our unit. I made a set of weather vocabulary cards to use in a pocket chart throughout the unit. The set includes 40+ words and two different graphic organizers for weather related vocabulary.
Here is a picture of my weather vocabulary chart
with the words we have learned about so far.
