Understanding weather patterns is a fun and engaging way to introduce young students to the concepts of statistics and data. Our free “Weather” worksheet is designed specifically for kindergarten, year 1, and year 2 students, providing a hands-on approach to learning about data collection and representation. This resource will not only enhance their math skills but also foster an interest in observing and recording weather phenomena.

What is the “Weather” Worksheet?

The “Weather” worksheet is a comprehensive resource that includes two different pictographs for documenting weather over a 10-day period. This allows students to practice data collection and representation in a visually engaging way.


Here’s what you’ll find in this worksheet

The first graph Includes 6 different weather types at the bottom: sunny, partially cloudy, cloudy, rainy, stormy, and


snowy. The graph contains outlines of these weather icons. Students can color in the pictures to represent the weather they observe each day.


Second Graph:

  • Weather Types: Features the same 6 weather types at the bottom.

  • Blank Graph: This graph does not have pre-drawn pictures. Students can either color the boxes to represent the weather types or cut out the weather pictures from the third page and glue them onto the graph.

How to Use the “Weather” Worksheet

  1. Preparation:

    • Download and print the worksheet for each student.

    • Provide coloring supplies (crayons, markers, or colored pencils) and scissors and glue if students will be cutting and pasting.

  2. Activity Steps:

    • Step 1: Daily Weather Observation: Over a 10-day period, have students observe and record the weather each day.

    • Step 2: Using the First Graph: For the first graph, students color in the weather icon outlines that match their daily observations.

    • Step 3: Using the Second Graph: For the second graph, students can either color the boxes to represent the weather types or cut out the weather icons from the third page and glue them in place.

    • Step 4: Discussing Patterns: After the 10-day period, review the graphs as a class. Discuss any patterns or trends in the weather data they have collected.


Educational Benefits

  • Introduction to Data Collection: Students learn how to collect and document data over a set period.

  • Understanding Pictographs: The worksheet helps students understand how pictographs represent data.

  • Visual Learning: Using pictures and colors makes data representation more accessible and engaging for young learners.

  • Observational Skills: Daily weather observation encourages students to be more aware of their environment.


Classroom Integration Tips

  • Morning Routine: Incorporate the weather observation into the morning routine. This daily activity can help settle students and focus their attention.

  • Math Centers: Use the worksheet in math centers to provide a hands-on data collection and representation activity.

  • Cross-Curricular Connections: Connect this activity with science lessons about weather to reinforce learning across subjects.

  • Interactive Bulletin Board: Create a class weather bulletin board where students can post their completed graphs, allowing them to compare data with their classmates.


Extension Activities

  • Weather Reports: Have students present their weather data to the class, fostering public speaking skills and reinforcing their understanding of the data they collected.

  • Graph Comparisons: Compare the two types of graphs and discuss which one was easier to use and why.

  • Seasonal Patterns: Extend the activity by tracking weather over a longer period and discussing seasonal weather patterns.

  • Digital Graphing: Introduce students to basic digital graphing tools to create weather graphs on the computer.

The “Weather” worksheet is a fantastic way to engage young learners in the concepts of data collection and representation through a familiar and daily phenomenon—weather. By making this activity part of your classroom routine, you can help students develop crucial math and observational skills in a fun and interactive way.
