This unit consists of five parts that occur over the course of a school year. In Part 1 students are introduced to different ways to describe weather. In Part 2, students record weather observations each day on bar graphs. In Part 3, at the end of each month, students analyze the bar graphs. In Part 4, at the end of the school year, students use the data to describe patterns of weather. In Part 5, students read an Elementary GLOBE book: What in the World Is Happening With Our Climate? and compare regions with different patterns of weather (climate). The storybook is one of five storybooks in the Elementary GLOBE curriculum.
