There are many different ways you can integrate math into a unit on weather. Try graphing temperature, conducting a survey, or tracking weather for a month. Freebie templates are included in this blogpost!
Each day for a couple of weeks, have students check the temperature and graph the results. After the two week period, ask students questions about the results. Have students draw conclusions from the data they have gathered.
Conduct a Survey
As a class, compose a yes or no question related to weather such as “Do you like thunder storms?” or “Have you ever been in a blizzard?” Students ask at least ten to fifteen people their question and then discuss the results.
Give students a copy of this month’s calendar. Develop a key with the students (for example, draw a sun for a sunny day, a cloud for a cloudy day, etc.) and have them track what the weather is like each day. CLICK to DOWNLOAD the following calendar template to use with your students:
