NSTA Daily Do: How do we find patterns in weather? Collection
Most of us think about the weather every day. It informs the choices we make like what to wear and how we're going to get to school, work or the store (walk, bike, take the bus). We might not notice it, but we think about climate a lot, too. We may make a plan to visit someplace new at a particular time of year to help ensure we'll experience the weather we want or wait excitedly for warm months to swim and play outside.
In today's task, How do we find patterns in weather? students and their families read the NSTA eBook Thinking Like a Scientist: Investigating Weather and Climate which engages them in science and engineering practices and the use of patterns as a thinking tool (crosscutting concept) to figure out science ideas about weather and how patterns of weather determine the climate of an area.
