Nose up high in the sky - Observing and measuring weather conditions

In this set of three activities, pupils will learn how their senses and instruments can be used to describe and measure weather conditions. Pupils will learn to identify the weather elements, to observe and record weather conditions and identify local weather processes. They will learn that satellites, computers and scientific instruments are used to make weather forecasts by building a small meteorological station and taking weather measurements of rain, wind speed and air temperature before representing and interpreting their data.
