Weather Unit

We just finished up our weather unit. We read Weather Words and What They Mean by Gail Gibbons. We used this TpT weather unit to help record all the things we learned in our All About Weather folders.

We learned all about clouds, the weather cycle, temperature, etc and documented it on our Weather T chart as we were learning. The students had a great time. Even my new student with very low language was able to explain the water cycle by the end of the unit. That was impressive!

The older kids really enjoyed making these weather cycle bags. I forgot to snap a picture of them while we had them up in the window. All the students also enjoyed making the different types of clouds with cotton balls.

Here are a few of the resources I used during our unit:
All About Weather: Math, Literacy, and SO Much More!
Weather Themed Math and Literacy Bundle
Weather Fun! A Literacy and Math unit with Common Core Standards Included!
My Weather Words Vocabulary Booklet
Temperature Match Up
