Many early childhood and early school-age programs observe and document the weather outside. Children are often eager to share what the weather was like or how it has changed since they arrived. It’s important for children to have the opportunity to record their data and compare over time. Simple charts can be used to document this. If you have small whiteboards, chalkboards, iPads, window markers, etc., there’s another activity young children can participate in: learning weather terminology and symbols.
