First Grade investigates Weather
In the afternoon this week we continued to investigate weather. We discussed different kinds of storms, what causes them, what causes thunder and lightning and defined wind. We discovered how clouds form, how water changes, investigated the water cycle and the different kinds of precipitations. We also examined how to measure the weather and what instruments are used.
For a week at home we gathered weather data in our weather journals than graphed and compared our results with our classmates discovering that weather patterns can be different in various areas.
