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.
