Make a Weather Chart With Your PreSchoolerAugust 22, 2008 7:59 pm Games and Activities
Taking temperature readings of the weather outside may be a little too much for preschoolers who can’t really “see” temperature. But your child can see the clouds, feel the rain on his face, and the chill in his fingers when when snow falls. He can see when it’s foggy, and he knows when it’s windy outside.
To establish the concepts of weather, make a weather chart for your child. Make separate rows for each day of the month, and let her decorate with weather symbols – rain, clouds, sun etc. Then, let her use colored stickers to denote the weather outside – blue for a rainy day, black for cloudy weather, yellow for a sunny day, white for snow, and so on. She can even use combinations of stickers to denote a day that started out sunny, but ended up dark and gloomy – a half yellow sticker and a half black sticker. Let he do this every morning.
For an older child, you can take temperature readings, and record these too.
Make sure you hang the weather chart at her eye level – kids like to see what they are taking part in!
