Celebrate World Meteorological Day
Every March 23rd is World Meteorological Day. Encourage you mini meteorologist to learn about the scientific aspect of this field with a few easy activities. From experiments to imaginative art projects, your child can celebrate this weather-filled day!
Compare the weather. Make a historical comparison, exploring what the weather was like on this day (March 23) in other years. Take a look at what the temperature, precipitation and wind was like in your area.
Pretend play. Turn your living room into a newsroom, with a pretend play meteorologist session. Your child can deliver the weather on your family’s ‘nightly news’ Video tape it and play it on the TV or your laptop.
Concern yourself with climate change. Help your child to understand what impacts the weather and how that, in turn, affects the Earth. Do some research online or head to the local library. If you can find a lecture at a local university or science center, treat your child to a day of learning fun!
Create a collage. Cut and glue paper in the shapes of various weather elements. Make fluffy clouds, raindrops, the sun and snowflakes. Craft one super-sized collage that showcases all of the weather types or make individual artworks that include each different type of meteorological event.
