Weekly Weather Chart

Weekly Weather Chart lesson plan

  • 1.

    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.

  • 2.

    Science, math, language, and art come together when children record weather. Use words and symbols to assure that everyone can interpret the chart.

  • 3.

    Children learn how scientists collect and record data, skills necessary as they gather information and make decisions.

  • 4.

    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.

  • 5.

    With a ruler, measure the paper into five columns. Draw lines to make your columns.

  • 6.

    At the top of each column, write the names of days, Monday through Friday. Draw another line under them.

  • 7.

    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.
