Weather Incursion (P – 2)

Theme: Science – Earth and Space Sciences
Level: Prep – 2

This exciting 90-minute incursion is packed full of models and demonstrations of various kinds of weather and is guaranteed to provide students with a good understanding of how different kinds of weather events occur. Students study the movement of water and air to learn how rain is produced. They also model the water cycle, cyclonic movement and rain formation. This incursion has many fun activities that are perfect for younger year levels. Our passionate science educators carefully guide students through each step, prompting students to predict, observe and reflect on each activity.

 

Learning outcomes

  • Students study how the weather works.
  • Students explore the movement of water and air in relation to the sun and Earth.
  • They investigate changes in the sky and landscape.

 

Activities

  • Discussing prior knowledge of weather.
  • Observing evaporation and condensation in action.
  • Modelling transpiration to explore the role of plants in the water cycle.
  • Modelling rain clouds to understand how rain falls. 
  • Observing a hot air balloon and discussing how it relates to air movement.
  • Using water droplets to model rain, and explore the effect on different landscapes.
  • Exploring how temperature differences cause air and water to move up and down.
  • Exploring wind strength/ direction and how to measure it.
  • Experimenting with a ‘tornado in a bottle’ to understand cyclonic movement.

 

Victorian Curriculum: Content Descriptions

  • Observable changes occur in the sky and landscape; daily and seasonal changes affect everyday life (VCSSU046)
  • The way objects move depends on a variety of factors including their size and shape: a push or a pull affects how an object moves or changes shape (VCSSU048)
  • People use science in their daily lives (VCSSU041)
