We begin our thematic science unit on weather learning about CLOUDS. We will be building on our large class bulletin board
( really a G.O. Chart ), performing numerous experiments, learning several songs, using the weather wise app to record daily weather and keep track of the accuracy of forecasting. We will be learning about our the atmosphere , go to many places like the the antarctic, desert regions etc. We will look at what influences/creates weather and so much more ! Time allowing we look into our environment and climate change.
The children took out their cloud viewers and observed what clouds were in the sky. They tried to pronounce the cloud names and some were humming the song of the week about clouds! Sweet moment.
Weather , forecasting and the changes we experience through out the day lends it self well to many of our social thinking topics specifically unexpected/expected concepts, change and how to dress.
