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, Foggy, and Stormy as well as temperature types like Hot, Warm, and Cold.

Why Do We Track The Weather?

There are a few reasons why we track the weather. One reason is so that we can dress appropriately for the day. If it’s going to be sunny outside, we know to wear sunscreen and a hat. If it’s going to be cold, we know to wear a coat. Another reason is so that we can plan our activities. If it’s going to be raining, we know that we can’t go to the park. But, we could plan to stay inside and read books or do a puzzle. Tracking weather patterns can also help us predict weather events like thunderstorms or hurricanes.

Benefits Of Weather Charts For Kids

When we use a weather chart we can talk about what the different types of weather are and how they feel. We can also track the temperature each day to see if it’s getting warmer or colder outside. Weather charts are a great way to get kids interested in the weather and observing changes that happen each day.

Some benefits of using a weather chart with kids are:

  • They help kids learn about the different types of weather and how to identify them.
  • Kids can learn about temperature and what it means when it’s hot, warm, or cold outside.
  • 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.

Can This Weather Chart For Kids Be Used At Home And In The Class Room?

Yes! This weather chart can be used at home or in the classroom as one of your teaching resources. If you’re using it in the classroom, you could hang it up on a bulletin board or have kids glue it into their science journals. At home, you could use it to help kids dress for the day or plan your day’s activities.

How Do You Introduce Weather To Kids?

If you’re not sure how to introduce weather to kids, a great way to start is by talking about the different types of weather and what they look like. You can also talk about the temperature and what it means when it’s hot, warm, or cold outside. Once kids have a basic understanding of weather, you can start using the chart to track the weather each day.

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 🙂
