Our team has been working hard these past few months to create tons of resources for your children to learn about different types of weather and natural disasters. We have some children that are fascinated by the weather, and had a hard time finding resources that would work for them. We wondered if that was the case for you as well.
Since we really enjoy learning science in themes and unit studies we thought it would be a good idea to create lots of different round-ups for you that you can use in your homeschool!
We are no strangers to severe thunderstorms here in Florida, that’s for sure! Thunderstorms can be extremely scary for little ones, so doing a unit study with them and explaining what thunder is, where it comes from, and why we have it is a good way to help them to not be afraid. They will also learn a ton in the process.
When I was teaching my youngest about thunderstorms she began to really be interested and was no longer as scared as she was before.
When we find something that fascinates our children we like to dig deeper into that topic and create a themed unit study for those specific subjects. This works well for science, especially. If you are learning about weather in your homeschool we have some high quality resources that we have created that will be a great asset to use with a unit study on thunderstorms.
We love to delve deep into unit studies on specific subjects in our homeschool. I have also created a round up of free printables that you can use for unit studies on thunderstorms and severe weather.
Students will use a combination of written narration, copywork, drawing and labeling alongside The New Weather Book to learn all about weather, natural disasters, and meteorology. View sample pages of the Weather Student Notebook – A Meteorological Notebooking Adventure.
