What's the Weather?

My students need weather station animation, a station weather upright, thermometers, and a forecast map in order to be able to tell the weather.

My Students

As a teacher in a high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. All of my students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Most of my students are English language learners.

English is not their first language. They are eager to learn. I want to provide my students with as many opportunities to learn as possible despite all of the challenges we face in a district that receives very little funding.

My Project

In our science curriculum, we need to learn about the weather. My students need to be able to see how all the instruments work that they will read about. The station weather upright will help show the students how each instrument works. They can then use the forecast map to show what they think is going to happen with the weather.

The best way to teach weather is by using the instruments that meteorologists use to predict the weather.

Students need to have a hands-on experience rather than just reading about it in a book. They will be able to see how this can be useful in their daily lives.
