Delta Science Modules, Weather and Sky Delta Education K-1 hard copy Weather and the sky are science topics that students can explore firsthand every day. Using their senses and several weather tools, students observe and measure weather factors such as temperature, wind, clouds, and precipitation. They record data on a weather calendar, which helps them recognize daily and seasonal weather changes and patterns. They also find out how weather affects everyday life. Next, students compare the daytime sky and the nighttime sky. They trace shadows to discover that the Sun changes position in the sky during the day. By keeping a Moon Phase journal, they conclude that the Moon, too, moves in a predictable pattern and appears to change shape, as well. Visit Site
