Older preschool children find this activity a challenge. Prepare a sample chart and offer rulers to help children figure out how to divide paper into columns. Encourage them to think about how big to make words in each space.
Science, math, language, and art come together when children record weather. Use words and symbols to assure that everyone can interpret the chart.
Children learn how scientists collect and record data, skills necessary as they gather information and make decisions.
Use a 12- by 18-inch sheet of construction paper. Write your name and Weather Chart at the top with Crayola® Construction Paper™ Crayons. Draw a line under your title.
With a ruler, measure the paper into five columns. Draw lines to make your columns.
At the top of each column, write the names of days, Monday through Friday. Draw another line under them.
On each day of the week, talk with your friends about the weather. What is the temperature? Wind? Clouds? Precipitation? Use words and pictures to record observations.
Our crayons have been rolling off the assembly line since 1903, and you can see how it’s done.
