Weather Unit Study

Weather Unit Study

I know, I know, another unit study. I promise that by Friday I will have my next sewing project up! It will my pattern remix of Me Sew Crazy's Spring Fever Pattern for Project Run & Play's Pattern Remix Party.

There are tons and tons of resources out there for weather units. It's almost overwhelming! Here are the ones I plan to chose from when we do our weather unit study.

Everything we use for our units can be found either FREE or cheap. ;)


When it comes to science kits my favorites always come from The Young Scientist Club or Magic School Bus.

Young Scientist Club kits 4 - 6 (you can opt for the monthly club but it is cheaper to buy 3 kits in one set on Amazon)


Adventure Science Series - Wacky Weather (Young Scientists Club)


There are quite a few Magic School Bus books on weather. We will definitely be using more than one! ;)
