Weather Wednesday!

The kindergartners participated in our fourth Weather Wednesday today. We have been tracking the temperature daily after recess and creating a bar graph showing the type of weather for each day. On Wednesdays the students have been filling in their own data on their weather tracking chart. (This will become a book by the end of the school year. We will be able to look for patterns about the weather from the data we collect all year!) We have been listening to the weather song from you tube  and deciding what words describe the weather of the day.

To go along with our Science Weather unit we read Caps, Hats, Socks and Mittens A Book About the Four Seasons by Louise Bordan. Our math enVision 2.0 also had a tie into the weather unit and today we had a worksheet that the students circled the clothing items they would wear in the summer and winter seasons and record how many items they counted for each season. After the students recorded their weather findings and did the math sheet it was time for Mr. Musselman's Cloud Show. Mr. Musselman read the book Clouds by Jane Manners. He taught the students that you need water, heat and cold to create a cloud.  The students impressed Mr. Musselman with their knowledge and he said he would be back to learn more from us!

We watched and sang along to the weather song.

Mr. Musselman analyzed our temperature chain. We now have 18 links on our chain for the 18 days we have been in school and so far we have 7 orange, 6 yellow, 3 green and 2 red links!

Here the students are recording their data in their own weather charts.

Mr. Musselman reading the Cloud book.

Three different types of clouds were in the book- Cirrus, Cumulus and Stratus.

To make a cloud you need- WATER


and COLD.

Here is the cloud we created!  You need to look carefully to see it.
