Weather and The Climate

We are going to be learning all about weather and the climate. For this activity, you are going to pretend that you are a meteorologist. This is a name for a person who studies the weather (see if you can look up this word in the dictionary).


Have a look through the presentations and videos to learn more about this topic. There are lots of resources attached, including an experiment, but you can also carry out your own research too. Think about some fun facts that you might want to find out. Here are a few questions that you might want to think about: 


How do clouds form?

Why is it important that we have rain?

Why is it important that we have sunshine?

What causes thunder and lightening? 

Why can you see your breath when it is cold outside?

Why do we get snow?

  1. Watch the video 'be a weather watcher’. Create your own diary to log the weather over the next week.


  1. Complete one of the worksheets attached.


  1. Complete the cloud experiment. See if you can write up your experiment. Don’t forget to include:

1. A Title

2. Subheadings

3. Equipment– write a list of what you will need 

4. Method– write instructions to explain what you are going to do (remember your bossy verbs!)

5. Prediction– what do you think will happen?
