First Friday Freebie #6: Weather Tracker

For a fun end of year/summer break activity, share this weather tracker form with your students. They can continue to practice their observation, reading, and recording skills as they read weather forecasts and keep track of the daily weather patterns.

Sites like Intellicast, Accuweather, and The Weather Channel provide daily forecasts and other weather/seasonal information.

The information can then be analyzed by:

  • graphing highs and lows
  • graphing precipitation
  • graphing humidity
  • comparing forecasts to actual weather reports
  • charting the phases of the moon.

The Freeology site has graph paper, observation charts, and timelines which could be used for analyzing data.
