Recently, I made this data sheet so that Mikah could record the daily weather. The information it records can all be found easily online. So, if you can use this feel free to grab it!
As I wrote in another post, we are using NOEO Biology I this year with Mikah. We are enjoying the curriculum. They start off the year teaching about weather because it effects the habitats of animals and plant life. It’s a little bit on the easy side for a 3rd grader who has had hands-on science since before she was old enough for pre-school. (That’s what happens when your brother who is older by 7 years loves science.) But since she is about on grade level with her reading we chose to wait for the Biology II and do it later. Anyhow, that’s why I made the data sheet. I needed to make the data collection a little more organized and harder for her. I also found a similar sheet (after I made mine!) that could be used with students from the Center of Atmospheric Research.
The way NOEO science works is that each day the students have part of a book to read. Then they notebook something they learn that day. The curriculum comes with some basic notebooking pages. One day a week the student preforms experiments. (Everything comes with the curriculum except some basic household items.) It only takes about 15 to 20 minutes a day to complete the assignment. It’s great for families who want living literature, no fill-in-the-blank worksheets and hands-on experiments. �
