This Temperature Weather Lesson makes it simple to explain the concept of temperature. Use the 5-day temperature trackers to have your students record the daily temperature in the morning, afternoon, and evening. Students will put their observation skills to the test after the week by answering questions about their temperature trackers. Your learners will utilize their detective skills to connect the temperature gauge to written temperatures, temperature to seasonal clothing, and greater than and less than skills. Don’t forget about the temperature gauge project, in which your students will create a functional gauge that may be utilized with many activities in your weather lessons.
The Temperature Weather Lesson includes:
- Teacher’s Guide
- 8×10″ ASL Anchor Wall Chart
- Caregiver’s Guide
- 5-Day Temperature Tracker (morning, afternoon, evening)
- Temperature Observation Sheets
- 2 Matching Temperature Worksheets
- Greater/Less than Worksheet
- Temperature Gauge Craft
- ASL Dictionary link
There are more activities for this mini-lesson in the teacher and caregiver guides. These activities about temperature can be printed and used in the classroom or at home. The sign language anchor wall chart will help your kids learn and remember vocabulary. With the ASL Dictionary link, you can confidently sign even if you don’t know the sign.
Encourage your students to look for temperature patterns while they practice sign language and discuss these topics:
- What is the temperature today?
- What will the temperature be like tomorrow?
- How regularly is the temperature forecast correct?
- How often is it incorrect?
- How does the temperature affect our daily lives?
