Weather Unit - Clouds Weather Fronts Winds and More

When we started this unit, I thought we would just review the types of clouds. We then went into much more depth about weather in general!  This packet ballooned from 25 to almost 70 pages!

Clouds and Weather Packet

We went on to talk about weather map symbols, the major types of winds, and finally wrapped things up with a study of the weather fronts.

Weather Worksheets - Global winds, jet stream, high and low pressure systemsWe talked about global winds, the jet stream, land and sea breezes. We also talked about monsoons, el Niño and la Niña conditions. We went into depth about cold fronts, warm fronts and occluded fronts. And then touched on weather conditions caused by low-pressure systems.

This packet includes student pages (fill-in-the-blanks) with full teacher notes (that you can give as hand outs instead if you prefer).

This Weather Packet includes a cloud booklet, activities and worksheets.

Do I need any other books/materials?  No, but you may want to get some basic books out of the library on clouds, weather, wind, etc.  We often read other sources and watch documentaries when we do our units.  I have some suggestions of things we watched on youtube, but if you hunt around you’ll find dozens of great resources!

For example, we watched this video about the Jet Stream:

raging planet dvd - Natural Disasters documentaryBy the way, my kids all loved Raging Planet episodes (affiliate link) They watched the entire series when we did the natural disasters unit! Here’s the description on Amazon: revealing the speed of a twister, the power of a hurricane, the lethal force of a lightning bolt, the instant devastation of a flood, or the explosive punch of a volcano. Feel what it’s like to be inside a house when a storm rips the roof off, when a cloud of volcanic ash overtakes you, or what a street sign picked up by a tornado would do to your car window. This is Nature at its wildest and most furious.

These two packets are currently FREE to download!  I know this is a tough time for everyone and I wanted to do something to support the homeschool and educational community!  If your students enjoy this packet, I would love to hear from you! ~Liesl

P.S. The Clouds, Winds and Weather Packet took approximately two months (or more?!) to put together (and I’m not including the Natural Disasters Packet in that time frame!). Just in the last week, I spent about an hour and half to two hours most days working on it… and today I worked on it for another 6 hours.  Plus, I purchase many of the images that are included in our packets. As you’ll see, I went crazy with various pictures about the fronts and land & sea breezes… I’m a visual person as you can tell!!  Anyway, I just wanted to let you know how much time and effort goes into creating these packets. It’s a labor of ♥love♥ for sure! I truly hope this is useful and that your kids learn a lot!  ~Liesl

This packet is currently free, but if you get edits in the future, the email will talk about your order number or might say thank you for your purchase or what have you… even if you paid $0.00. 🙂 Just wanted to be clear!!
