Students will start the year studying weather. I highly encourage students watch the local and national weather forecasts during this time to familiarize themselves with vocabulary and terms. Special reports on severe weather are also highly recommended, as we discuss cause and effects and safety concerns related to these types of weather conditions.

For a complete breakdown of what students will be learning during our weather unit, please click on "Standards" on the navigation bar to the left.

Below you will find a number of links to child friendly websites where students can explore weather beyond the classroom. There is also a Word document that lists several online weather games that students may enjoy playing. Weather is a very interesting topic and tied to many things we are going to be learning throughout the year, you can encourage your child's interest by:

- Establishing a home weather station (thermometer, rain guage, etc.)

- Watching news stories and documentaries about weather

- Creating a weather observation journal

- Photograph weather (wind, rain, clouds, flooding, etc.) and create a weather scrapbook or blog

- Check out books and videos about the weather from the library

- Organize a scouting trip to a local weather station

- Keep a hurricane tracking map up and active during hurricane season

If you have any questions about our weather unit, please do not hesitate to contact me.
