Weather weather everywhere

Weather, Weather Everywhere!

Weather here, weather there

Weather, weather everywhere!

Is it foul, is it fair?

Weather, weather everywhere!

What to do, what to wear?

Weather, weather everywhere!

I’ll keep data because I care

Weather, weather everywhere!

Weather project

Weather Project

  • Project: K-4 students will collect cloud, rainfall, max-min temperature data during a one week period to use as a comparison of data from their local area and other schools within the GLOBE program.Materials needed per class:

    • If available, GLOBE weather station with max-min Celsius thermometer and rain gauge

    • If GLOBE weather station is not available, a Celsius thermometer and rain gauge should be placed outside (specs to be added later)

    • Access to outside as a large group

    • Access to a computer for data input

    • Materials needed per student:

      • Student Weather Journal with data sheets (see attachments)

      • Pencil

      • GLOBE Cloud chart

      • GLOBE Contrail chart

      • US map or World map (black and white copy)

Weather or not

  • Students will make observations and collect data for a one week period (to be chosen during each season). These should be taken at one hour on either side of solar noon.

  • Students will record data online to share with the K-4 Atmosphere project collective.

  • Students will analyze data collected and post their conclusions.

  • Sample Questions to be asked:

    Looking at the data collected for the week at your school,

    What is the warmest day of the week?

    What is the coolest day of the week?

    What is the average temperature? (for applicable grade level)

    List the days and the temperature from highest to lowest temperature

    List the days and the temperatures from lowest to highest temperature.

    What day has the temperature that is in the middle of the highest and lowest?

  • Look at the data collected for the week at other schools, compare your school's data to another :

    Find your partner school on a map. What is the warmest day of the week?

    What is the coolest day of the week?

    What is the average temperature? (for applicable grade level)

    List the days and the temperature from highest to lowest temperature

    List the days and the temperatures from lowest to highest temperature.

    What day has the temperature that is in the middle of the highest and lowest?

Math statement prompts

Math Statement Prompts

  • Write a math statement about the weather this week using temperature, rainfall, contrails or clouds.

  • Which day this week had the lowest temperature?

  • Which day this week had the highest temperature?

  • Is today hotter or cooler than yesterday?

  • On which day was the cloud cover the most?

  • On which day was the cloud cover the least?

  • What was the cloud cover and temperature like on (date)?

  • Compare and contrast the temperature on (date) and (date).

  • Find a GLOBE school or partner school that has the same temperature (cloud cover,

    contrails, precipitation) on the same day as your school. Write about what you think this

    day was like at both schools.

  • Based on today's weather data what do you think tomorrow's weather will be and why?

  • What type of contrails have you seen the most?

  • What is the average temperature for the week?

  • Graph the daily temperature.

  • What was the frequency of precipitation during the week?

  • What was the total amount of precipitation for the week?

  • Draw a bar graph to record your data.

  • What is the difference today in the temperature from yesterday?


Writing prompts

Writing Prompts

  • Pretend you are lying on your back and looking at the clouds, what do you see?

  • Go outside. Lie on your back. Look at the clouds and use your imagination…find three shapes that look like animals to you. Describe.

  • It was a dark and stormy night…..

  • The weather makes me happy when…

  • The weather makes me sad when…

  • The weather scares me when….

  • My favorite season of the year is…

  • How did you feel the first time you saw….snow, lightning, 'whatever is common in your area'?

  • How did you feel the first time you heard thunder?

  • Thunder sounds like….

  • Lightning looks like…

  • If I were a cloud, I would be…

  • You are a raindrop. Write a story about your rainy adventure.

  • I really like bad weather days when school closes because…
