We talked about how we needed to dress for the weather and what that looked like in each kind of weather. We sorted clothing pictures into the weather categories they went with. I found this great easy to read nonfiction weather book from Scholastic Book Clubs.
We read Storm is Coming. Then we made a flow map to show the cause and effect relationships in the story. Our storm clouds came from a Cupcake for the Teacher. The unit includes a pattern, but I had my students create their own clouds.
This writing response sheet also came from the unit. We went outside and laid down on the ground and looked up into the sky. We talked about what we could see right then as well as other things we had seen in the sky before.
Scholastic has these great nonfiction books about weather. They are perfect for little ones. You can purchase them separately and in small sets from Scholastic Book Clubs.
We ran out of time before we got to my last lesson with Harry by the Sea and how to keep cool when it is hot outside. I will share it next week along with the pattern freebie for it.
