Weather Around the World

Grade 3 - Weather and Climate

In this Storyline, students develop an understanding of daily and yearly weather patterns by collecting and analyzing weather data and using that data to make predictions. They learn about climate zones and how an area's location on Earth affects its climate. They research severe weather, including where it happens around the world and its effect on people, and then apply this understanding to design a solution aimed at reducing the impact of a weather-related hazard.
