Cloud Resources

on August 14, 2013

I teach weather concepts as one of my first big science units in 5th grade. One of the things that is new to weather learning in our grade level is clouds. Kids love learning about clouds, and it is a great way to teach affixes and word parts as a literacy connection. Today, I came across these great resources for teaching about clouds.

S’COOL Cloud ID Chart – printable, full color, and available in many languages

Reading Passage – can be used as a reference or as an anchor text in a literacy block for learning about clouds

Cloud ID Key – questioning chart that helps students identify types of clouds

Cloud Circle – cutout chart to be used for students, could also be modified to have students make their own based on their research

And, then there’s this! I LOVE Mr. Parr’s YouTube channel of science songs!
