Weather

Every student has personal experience with weather of some kind. We often select activities, clothing, and a place to live based on weather. Understanding the weather can also prepare us to take precautions that will keep us safe in the event of severe weather. This unit helps students explore weather's many different aspects, including temperature, wind, clouds, precipitation, and storms. Certain unit materials address what causes the weather to occur. The unit also draws connections between the seasons and their weather patterns.
