Suggestions for weather activities? I teach middle school special education.?

Question by Kerosene: Suggestions for weather activities? I teach middle school special education.?
Next week I want to start working with my students on weather. One activity I had in mind was to use a digital thermometer to “take the temperature” of various things (ice water, room temperature water, warm water, hot water). The purpose of the activity would be so that students would learn that the higher the temperature, the hotter it is.

Does anyone have any other suggestions? Or good websites that have activities? I checked a number of websites, but there wasn’t anything I really liked.
I should probably mention that, academically, most of my students are functioning at approximately a first grade level–some are a little higher and some are a little lower, but 1st grade is the average.

Your idea is great. If it is temperature you want to teach them, do it with clothing.for example, have a large picture of a boy and girl and make lots of different clothing for it ( just stick them on with velcro or blu tack) also have pictures of the sun, rain, thunder etc, as the students what they think is appropiate to wear in each weather.
Maybe they could then judge by the clothes they are wearing what kind of weather and temperature it will be.

Example:

You hold up a picture of a sun for sunny day, they dress the man in t shirt, shirts and sun glasses. They see it must be hot as you dont need as many clothes.
Hope that made sense!

Answer by Loş†pяophєt Oşcaя françoisє™
I believe the site you want to look at is:

http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/find…

Just type in your zip code, or city and state in the upper left box and scroll down to History and Almanac and type in the month and any day or the day you are looking for. When this page comes up you can get daily weather or weekly, or monthly averages. The precip amounts for each day will be given if any. For a group of days simply add the accumlations.
