Integrate speaking into your weather unit by having a reporter of the day, asking students to give oral presentations about weather, or playing a weather storms description game. Read the blogpost for further details on these ideas!
Reporter of the Day
Assign a different student to give the weather report each morning before beginning your regular lessons. Provide students with a template so they can gather the information before they arrive at school. The type of information will vary depending on the age and grade of your students.
Oral Weather Presentations
Assign each student, or small group of two or three students, some aspect of weather (wind, sun, rain, etc.) or a weather storm (hurricane, blizzard, etc.). Students research to find out about their assigned topic and then present their information orally to the rest of the class.
Weather Words Description Game
Print weather words on individual pieces of paper. Put these words into a hat. Students take turns drawing out a word and then describing it to a partner or small group. The student cannot use the target word in their description. Once someone guesses their answer, another student chooses a weather word and the process continues.
