Interactive notebooks are a great way for kids to learn! There is something about coloring and cutting and gluing that makes school work much more pleasant. Interactive Notebooks (or Lapbooks) are a fancy way to get your children reading, writing, and learning more about specific topics.
This pack has 13 pages, and includes both color (for kids who don’t like coloring themselves) and black and white versions of the below pages.
Use the weather charting page for tallying weather for the month (or longer!). Tabs flip up to tally below them. You can do this for a specific length of time as a science project, or you may want to do it each morning as part of circle time at the beginning of your day. This is a great way to encourage your children to pay more attention to the weather and maybe even to the weather forecast! Watch, read, or listen to the weather forecast the day before, and then see if the next day’s weather matches what you read/saw in the forecast!
Weather tools may be new to your children. This is a fun way for your kiddos to learn more about these tools and find out what each one does. Have your children write about the tools and what they do under the tabs. Younger kids can just write the tool names. All tools shown are listed on the page label, so you can research and match them easily.
This page has a place for your children to write about the different types of precipitation. Again, the names of the four types of precipitation are included so your children can easily research them. This is also a great time to talk about the word precipitation and what it means.
This page is my favorite! The thermometer has the formula for your children to calculate Fahrenheit to Celsius. They should fill in the thermometers to reflect the temperature in Fahrenheit, and then under the flap, they can calculate the temperature in Celsius. Younger kids can look at a conversion chart to do this activity instead of doing the math.
These two pages have room for pockets and post cards with extreme weather events. Kids can describe these weather events on the backs of the post cards.
