How to make a weather chart for kids

The kids and I are on a weather kick. After we made the weather vane, the wheels started turning and I remembered an activity one of my first teachers came up with in elementary school.

It was a daily project that gave us opportunity to remember days of the week, observe weather patterns, and recognize how they apply to us.

Buddy and I made a similar weather chart complete with various weather symbols attached to Velcro. Every morning he looks out the window and then sticks the appropriate symbol on that day’s box on the chart.

To make your own, one sheet of poster board will do the trick, along with a couple of permanent markers, crayons, scissors, Velcro dots (2 for each day of one kind and enough of the other side to put on the back of the symbols), and tacks to hold it to the wall.

How have you been teaching your kids about weather? Have any project ideas or books you can recommend?

  1. I love this idea! It’s more visual than what I’ve been doing, but I’ll share…

    I started weather watching jars (http://familyfun.go.com/playtime/weather-watching-jars-706998/) with my 3-year-old. We tally up the pom poms every week, as opposed to every month. I use jelly jars, and have each one labeled with either Windy, Rainy, Sunny, or Cloudy and drew a little colored picture to correspond with that colored pom pom.

    I like the suggesting for graphing the results with older children.
