Through a week of activities, students will investigate aspects of winter weather such as temperature and wind. Students will also familiarize themselves with weather-related words.
- Learn winter weather vocabulary
- Write about a weather experience
- Learn about thermometers and freezing point
- Practice taking temperature readings with a thermometer
- Discover the properties of wind
Group assessment will take place by asking students to respond orally to questions about what makes wind and how air temperature is measured.

- Did students improve their weather vocabulary?
- Did students understand how to read a thermometer and connect air temperature to the concept of cold weather?
- Was the outdoor activity too chaotic?
- Did students understand that the change in air temperature causes the wind to blow?
- Did students express their understanding of winter weather in their assigned work?
