- Weather Conditions Worksheet Modified (optional, see Possible Modifications/Accommodations)
Sunny: A sunny day is when the sun is shining bright. It can be cold, warm, or hot. Activities: Ride a bike, play at the park, take the dog for a walk, visit the pumpkin patch, go to the beach, go to a festival/fair.
Independent Practice: Ask students to recall your discussion on how our daily activities depend on the weather condition outside. Instruct students to think about four different types of weather. Prompt them to use the pictures on the board as reference, if needed. For each block on their blank piece of paper, they will draw a picture to show an activity that he/she would do in that type of weather. Remind students to include any details like clothing as well as any items that would be found in the environment.
Students will be assessed according to their ability to...
1. Identifying 4 weather patterns.
2. Demonstrate how those conditions affect a person's daily activities.
Extensions: As students complete their drawings, have them label items in their work, or prompt them to write about what they are doing in each type of weather on the back of their paper. This activity can also be used to introduce the distinction between seasons.
- For students with difficulty attending or with fine motor difficulties, decrease the number of weather patterns to be identified.
- For students that find drawing challenging, acting out, listing, or simply verbalizing how the different types of weather conditions affect a person's daily activities may be an option.
- For students that may have difficulty generating weather patterns (or for any of the abilities mentioned above), provide a copy of the Weather Conditions Worksheet or the Weather Conditions Worksheet Modified (see Materials section above). The first worksheet offers four different patterns. The student would then draw or list activities that are done in each type of weather. The second offers activities for four different weather patterns and the child must cut out the weather pattern (or have this already done) and glue it to the square that it matches. Coloring is optional.
