Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).



This is a first grade science unit on weather.  Students will observe, measure, describe and record aspects of weather such as temperature, air, wind and clouds. They will also practice using various weather tools, and look for patterns in weather over a year-long span.


Learning Targets: 
Students will know that weather changes from day to day and over the seasons. Weather can be described by measurable quantities, such as temperature, wind direction, and speed and precipitation.
Students will know that Materials can exist in different states - solid, liquid and gas. Some common materials, such as water, can be changed from one state to another by heating or cooling.
Students will know that Tools such as thermometers often give more information about things than can be obtained by just observing things without their help.
Students will know that clouds have properties, locations and movements that can be observed and described.
