Wild Weather introduces students to the concept of weather and to the idea that scientific tools can be used to measure the phenomena they observe with their senses. Students observe weather; use thermometers, rain gauges, and wind scales; record their own data; and discuss their findings on cloud cover, precipitation, wind, and temperature. Students are asked to apply their new skills and knowledge to make predictions about the weather in their area. They compare their own weather predictions to the predictions of the local meteorologist and what actually happens with the weather where they live. The lessons in this unit enable students to appreciate how weather changes and how it affects their daily lives.
