Our March Unit focused on the relationship between the four seasons and weather. Students in Room 2 participated in various writing activities to identify their favorite season, weather, and associated activities. We also listened to weather forecasts and learned how to use a weekly weather forecast to identify the weather, temperature, and appropriate clothing to wear for each day. Students enjoyed participating in hands on activities to make snow, rainbows, and clouds.
