9 Weather Worksheets From MatchCard Science

Suggested projects are correlated with each objective. See the link below each worksheet for suggested activities and teaching ideas.

While there are a number of demonstrations and hands-on projects, there are not many actual science experiments where one factor is modified to see the change caused by the intervention. Changing weather and atmospheric conditions is a bit difficult for a basic science course.
