Weather Forecasting (Developed by SEPUP)

kit #480S

Students work together in teams to interpret weather maps from eight consecutive days. Each team initially interprets the map for a single day and constructs a weather report for that day. Teams assigned the same day then combine to prepare, and present their weather report to the class. Students then use the information for all eight days to forecast the weather for the unknown, ninth day.


  • Global patterns of atmospheric movement influence local weather
  • Weather is the outdoor conditions (such as temperature, precipitation, cloud cover, etc.) at a particular time and place. Weather maps provide visual summaries of some of these conditions
  • Scientists such as meteorologists, atmospheric scientists, climatologists, and hydrologists study different aspects of the earth's weather and atmosphere. Society relies on the information provided by such scientists
