Teaching about the Weather
When you teach your kids about the weather do they get extremely board are do they become fascinated with the weather and want to learn more? Some children have little interest in learning about the weather. And some children are entirely young so they just don't understand how things work. So finding the right technique that works for you is the key. When you teach about the weather is it just reading and few projects are do, you go hands on to learn about the Weather.
I will be the first to admit when I started teaching my kids about the weather I would just read about something like Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Cyclones, and my kids would be so board for obvious reasons. And when my kids get bored it is all downhill so I decide I needed to research fun project ideas for my lessons. I wanted to be able to keep their attention and make it fun for all of us to learn about the weather and how it works. I was able to come up with some great ideas for projects and some lesson to go with are crazy weather so I wanted to share project ideas and links for those of you who are in need of weather information.
