Students will use their critical thinking skills to design and execute a weather forecast for a specific time and geographical area. For a few minutes of prep from the teacher, students will share everything they know about precipitation, weather patterns, and weather measurements to create a possible forecast.

This resource is part of our Weather Unit, but we have better aligned resources for Alberta teachers below.

  • a complete lesson plan with options to modify for your students.
  • common forecasting symbols and weather maps.
