Weather science appears at various points in the elementary and middle school science curriculum. Luckily, weather is easily observable by students of all ages. Evidence of 'weather' can be felt in the air (do you need a jacket today?), observed in how a kite flies or how the trees move (is it windy?), or seen in the form of rain drops, snow flakes, or fog. As they study weather science, students have the opportunity from an early age to move from qualitative to quantitative observations. With simple tools, they can take measurements, gather and record data, and then analyze that data to make connections and draw conclusions. In upper elementary and middle grades, students can build upon weather science concepts to explore climate on both local and global levels.
