Preschool/Kindergarten teachers know that spring, should it ever arrive, is a great time to discuss all things weather related since it’s a time of great variability. This March, my area of the country will have seen temperatures from the teens to the 70s, ice, rain, gusty winds and beautiful mild days. Weather whiplash!
Bring your older students in on the fun as well by exploring weather idioms. I’ve created two activities covering 18 weather related expressions. Once you’ve discussed or defined the meanings, students can fill out the first worksheet which calls for determining bad weather/circumstance vs. good weather/circumstance.
Then, try the second worksheet in which you’ll decide which weather expression(s) best suit you. Are you a “fair-weather friend” or “a ray of sunshine?” Are you “in a fog” or “right as rain?”
Worksheets print color or black and white and an answer key is included.
