I have often said here at The Homeschool Scientist that science is every where. It is in the way our bodies work, the light bulb illuminating the room, the way a ball falls to the ground when dropped, and in the birds singing in the trees. All of these things can be researched and studied to learn more about the science behind them.
Another fascinating subject to study that is truly everywhere all the time is the weather. I even wrote a hands-on weather study lesson e-book called What Makes The Weather? that explores 6 atmospheric conditions that make up the weather. It is packed with experiments and activities that help students understand how weather works.
Weather STEM Activities
Exploring weather phenomena through experiments and other activities can help make the science come alive for students and help them really understand the atmosphere and the weather within it. These 20 weather STEM activities would make a great addition to the What Makes The Weather? study, your own weather study, or just for fun!
Informational coloring book about storms from the National Weather Service Parents and teachers, this does talk about the severity of storms, so it may be more appropriate for upper elementary grades. Please review first.
