Come Rain or Shine

First and Second Level - Outdoors Workshop

Class Level: P4-P7

Duration: 1 hour

How do we forecast the weather? Why do we get so many different types of weather? In this workshop, we go outdoors to learn more about our weather and if forecasting is as simple as it seems! Using map skills, we will stop at various locations outdoors around Dynamic Earth to make weather observations and measurements. Looking at temperature, wind speed and clouds, we will collect information to create a weather report!
