Understanding weather and seasons

Weather is something every child experiences first hand. Learners maintain a daily record of weather conditions on the class calendar to understand how the weather is recorded and the various symbols that represent weather conditions. To make the young learners of Nursery grade aware about different weather conditions and how it gets measured, the facilitators created different tools that can be used to record weather using sustainable materials. Tools such as a barometer, rain gauge, wind vane and a weather chart were put together to create a class weather station. The learners were thrilled to touch and examine the weather tools. This empowered the learners to take charge of their own learning process, which helped them gain in-depth knowledge of the ongoing thematic concept- Weather and Seasons.
