Project Title: How’s the Weather in Your Neck of the Woods?
Learning Innovation Grant Recipient
My class of Meteorologist will explore the many types of weather and the important role weather plays in our lives. During this learning journey the students will be tracking the daily weather in their weather journal, looking for patterns and learning about the different types of weather. They will be using different tools, such as thermometers and a rain gauge to incorporate measurement and counting into our daily routines. The students will be conducting experiments such as making clouds and a tornado in a bottle and they will be exposed to a variety of weather related reading material. The students will also design and build a structure to reduce the warming effects of the sunlight on their playground. Furthermore, the
students will research the daily weather forecast and serve as morning meteorologist on our schools daily WKID broadcast.
