First Friday Freebie #3: weather here or there

On the Same Day in March: A Tour of the World's Weather, by Marilyn Singer

On the Same Day in March: A Tour of the World’s Weather, by Marilyn Singer is another one of my favorite books. It can help broaden students’ perspectives as they “journey” around the world exploring the various types of weather and events that can all occur on the same day. It is amazing how varied that one day can be, depending upon where you are on the globe.

To give your students an opportunity to explore this same concept, use the interactive map I put together (click here for pdf file).


By following the links embedded in the map, your students can go on their own adventure around the world to compare the weather in various places on the same day in March.

Create a chart of the findings and/or have students use the data from the webcams to illustrate their own pages of a book based on Singer’s text.

I’ve also added another set of Daily Visual Challenges to my TpT store. First person to contact me gets a free copy. Happy almost spring! 🙂
