Disciplinary Core Idea
ESS2: Earth's Systems

Weather is a big part of our daily lives, and can tell us a lot about the surrounding world. In this activity, we’ll try to answer 2 big questions: “What is the weather?” and “How do we know this?” Students will use their 5 senses and other scientific tools to quantify and qualify the weather and how it changes to answer these questions!

Interdisciplinary with Mathematics. 

This lesson was originally written for Kindergarten. With modification, it could apply to 3rd grade standards.
