Learning about Weather in Kindergarten

Kindergarten students in Jill Farrell’s class were learning about the effects of weather through year-long lessons using the BOCES 4 Science Kindergarten weather unit kit. With this unit, students develop an understanding of patterns and variations in local weather and the use of weather forecasting to prepare for and respond to severe weather. While students hold their paper plate people with colorful hair, Mrs. Farrell uses a handheld blower to prove the effects of wind. This weather lesson leads into the PLTW unit on structure function and exploring design.
