What’s Up With the Weather?
This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
Is your child fascinated by the weather? Our youngest son has always been interested in why things happen in the sky, from thunderstorms to tornadoes to snowy days. This year for science, we are focusing mainly on weather and learning how to understand a forecast when we watch our local news report. The Weather Book from Master Books is our core text for science right now, but we have a bunch of related picture books on our shelves to supplement this book and keep our son’s interest going.
Some related activities we’ve done are featured in these posts:
- 28 Rainy Day Activities
- Experiment with wind power with Earth Day Pinwheels
- Sunny Day Nature Study
- Rainy Day Nature Study
- Learning about hail When the Sky Falls
Our favorite weather themed books are listed below. Some are nonfiction, and some aren’t, but they have all garnered my kids’ enthusiasm for learning over the years. If you have any suggestions to add to our list, please let us know in the comments below. While you’re here, be sure to add your family-friendly links. Happy forecasting!
