The Weather Student Notebook
The New Weather Book by Master Books is the most thorough resource we could find on weather and meteorology for students. With permission from the publisher we have created a science Notebook Companion™ that you can use alongside the book, geared towards 4th-8th grade.
The Weather Student Notebook includes:
- Comprehension questions for written narration
- Vocabulary terms for each unit in The New Weather Book
- Drawing and labeling
- Additional research downloads
- Guided drawing downloads
- Extra vocabulary term downloads
Our Notebook Companion™ includes a set of vocabulary cards. Enjoy these 95 fact cards to help students learn the definitions of the key terms explored in The Weather Student Notebook and The New Weather Book. Each fact card includes the term, where to find it in the unit, and space for the student to write the definition.
You can stretch this out to use for an entire school year by doing the additional research suggested and utilizing the free downloads found in the appendix. It’s flexible, so you can also choose to complete it in one semester or use as a supplement with your science curriculum.
Like our other open & go curriculum, there is no prep-work involved – you simply grab your copy of the book and your Notebook Companion™ and work at your own pace.
