Comprehensive, affordable and effective, Delta Science Modules Edition 3 (DSM-3) Kits provide an inquiry-based, hands-on approach to teaching a specific science topic through the use of activities and investigative equipment. Delta Science Module Weather and Sky Complete Kit will help your young class learn about what weather is and help them build a weather vocabulary of words and symbols. Using their senses and several weather tools, students will get to observe and measure 4 main weather factors: temperature, wind, clouds, and precipitation. They will record data on a weather calendar, which will help them recognize daily and seasonal weather changes and patterns. Students will find out how weather affects everyday life. Next, students will compare the daytime sky and the nighttime sky. They will trace shadows to discover that the Sun changes position in the sky through the course of a day, and they will model how Earth’s rotation causes day and night. Daytime observations will reveal that the Moon also appears to move across the sky. Finally, by keeping Moon Journals, students will conclude that the Moon’s apparent shape and position in the sky change in a pattern that repeats about once a month.

Along with the kit activities, the Weather and Sky Delta Science First Reader will get your students read and learn even more about weather (and explore the sky!). They will learn what weather is and how we observe, measure, and record its main features. They will also read about the 4 seasons and how seasonal weather changes affect living things. Students’ attention will then turn to the sky and what we see in the sky during the day and at night. Students will get to make a connection between their new weather knowledge and the world beyond school when they read about what a meteorologist does. Finally, they will extend their learning with an introduction to Moon phases.
