Last September we did s study on Weather. We created a lapbook to go with did study. In the study we covered a lot of topics such as...

...what weather is how it changes and how it's predicted.
...What is weather?
...How does weather change?
...What is wind?
...What are clouds?
...Where does rain come from?
...How are storms made?
-We constructed our very own "weather instruments" and used them to write a weather report. -We learned about the wind and used a "wind vane" to find out which direction the wind was moving.
-We also used an "anemometer" to measure the strength of the wind.
-We learned about the sun and how it warms the earth.
-We studied temperature change and made a model of a thermometer.
-We read a story in the Bible about a storm and how Jesus was able to calm the storm by commanding it to stop.
-We learned about clouds and what they are made off.

-We also learned about different types of clouds and how they can help us predict what the weather will me like.
-We learned about the rain and we used a "rain gauge" to measure rain fall. We also learned about storms and we made a tornado in a bottle.
-We did so many things that I can probably spend all night listing them all. It was a lot of fun.

here is a list of some of our Weather resources used for this study,
