Reflection: Complex Tasks Exploring Weather- One, Two, Three, Forecast! - Section 3: Small Group Instruction


I considered this lesson important for one reason.  When it all came down to it, the more they know about weather, they better they can develop their environmental awareness as a whole.  Weather is an easy subject to take for granted.  Yet the world around us depends on it so the more we can educate other about it, the better we can raise awareness.  The great thing about this age is that observing weather is fun!  Who doesn't want to sit and stare at rain..or look at wonder at the clouds?  When they learn to use these observations to make predictions, it's a great way to take chances, make mistakes, and adjust their practice according to those mistakes- all essential skills for learners.  These opportunities work together to create curiosity for the world around them.  This curiosity seeks them to learns more, which encourages more predictions, which...  You get the picture.  Any time this cycle of learning works to expand their knowledge and help the world around them, it's a beautiful thing.
