Free Weather Packet

Today I’m going to share some free weather worksheets I made for the kids.  This is for our study of the weather: the uneven heating of the Earth and how that affects our weather, fronts, and more!

Yesterday, I shared some of the science experiments we did about air. We learned that air has weight, hot air rises and more.  We are using a science textbook as the spine of this unit. These were the pages I made for the kids’ science notebooks. You can download them free by clicking on the link below. Some of the topics we studied included

  • meteorology,
  • air masses,
  • air pressure,
  • weather fronts
  • clouds,
  • wind

Weather Packet: Notebook Pages and Hands-on Activity Ideas

Our Cloud Log pages are also included

If you are looking for books with hands-on activity ideas for early elementary, here are a couple that we enjoyed:

weather-van-cleaveWe also got a lot of books about the weather out of the library… books about meteorology, clouds, tornadoes, etc. :)  The library is our best friend!

Biology Packet – The Biosphere

We talked a lot about the abiotic factors that make up an ecosystem (anything that is not living — climate, soil, weather, etc.), as well as touching on dominant plants and animals.  We spent time on feeding relationships and biological interactions. So, we went over the basic terms like herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, detritivores. And, we also talked a lot about the more complex biological interactions — from mutualism,when two species interact and both get something positive out of the interaction, to various forms of amensalism – when one organism benefits and the other is harmed and/or destroyed like parasitism, competition and antibiosis. We talked about the food chain and food webs as well as the difference between habitats, ecosystems, and biomes.
