10 Everyday Ways to Explore Science While Having Fun

5 of 11
Slide 4

Track the Weather


Summer is the season of heat waves and thunderstorms. Encourage your child to explore meteorology by keeping a weather calendar to describe whether it was hot or cool, humid or dry, or clear or stormy each day. Your younger child can learn to read a thermometer. Your older child can try to predict storms based on the types of clouds he sees, and he can decode weather maps in the newspaper. He can also track and discuss weather phenomena affecting other regions of the country, such as tornados and hurricanes.
