To go along with our Free Printable Interactive Calendar I finally finished our 3 Day Free Printable Weather Chart that you can use to track yesterday’s, today’s, and tomorrow’s weather with kids. Weather Activities are one of our favorites because with each season the weather changes giving us something new to learn and observe. The chart includes types of weather like Sunny, Cloudy, and Stormy as well as temperature types like Hot, Warm, and Cold.
Using a weather chart is great for kids because it provides:
- Exposure to the concepts of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
- Practice making scientific observations and predictions.
- Learning vocabulary words and weather terminology.
- Understanding correlation between months and seasons when used with a calendar.
|Here is our calendar and weather chart setup.|
After discussing weather charts with my mom who taught kindergarten in California were it doesn’t snow she mentioned I needed to add fog to my weather types so I added that in. Also you may notice that my weather types are a little large for my chart so I went in and redid the chart to make it perfect for you (hence the delay in sharing it–it was supposed to come out the same time as our calendar). Anyways, let’s get started enjoying some weather together no matter what it looks like outside. To get you started here’s a random weather quote 🙂
|Pin me please! 🙂|
1. Print out the weather chart. Laminate the template. Cut out the chart pieces, laminate them, and then cut them out again.2. To assemble the weather chart stick a piece of Velcro on each spot on the template using the Velcro adhesive. Make sure to use the same side of the Velcro (fuzzy side or prickly side). Then stick the opposite side of Velcro on each calendar piece.
