Climate and Weather

Throughout this module, students will use hands-on, inquiry-based investigations to explore:

  • how weather instruments work.
  • what is contained in a weather report.
  • how weather observations are made.
  • the underlying causes of weather patterns.
  • the difference between climate and weather.
  • how scientists know that the climate has changed in the past.
  • and how climate is changing now

Use the navigation on the right to explore resources that will be useful for the investigations.
