Weather Watch – Unit Booklet

This unit of work helps students to investigate the many aspects of weather and climate, beginning with their differences, why it’s important for us to study and try to understand it and how we observe and record weather. We study climate by reading and drawing climate graphs and maps. We look at Britain’s physical features and the effect this has on climate. The students study the hydrological cycle, why it rains, the various types of rainfall, and how we use rainwater. Depressions, anticyclones and whether thunderstorms are our friend or foe are investigated as well as the clothing associated with extreme weathers.

A range of individual and group activities are incorporated within this booklet, including, gathering research from print, word-fills, reading and drawing climate graphs, map reading, personification, picto and flow diagrams and personal observation.

Willson Education

Hi, I'm a Geography teacher with experience educating at various levels across the south of England, ranging from mainstream schools, SEN and extra-curricular tuition. I also have experience in teaching Humanities, English and PSHE topics, as well as having worked as a cover supervisor and an exams invigilator. I've also had the chance whist studying and practising Geography to visit some fabulous locations around the world such as the Sahara Dessert, the American Heartland for my dissertation and Germany as part of my degree study programme. All of my experiences so far have added to my passion for the subject and I continue to produce and edit educational material today with a view to passing on my enthusiasm for the subject as well as inspiring new Geographers.
