- The teacher can decide the best time allotted for each station that works for her
kids/classroom flow.
- It is very important to have a wrap-up at the end of this lesson, with each child explaining
how they helped with the group and the creation.
- The materials recommended to use can be interchangeable with what is available for the
teacher and students. I would suggest using: tin foil, marshmallows, Popsicle sticks,
gummy bear, and construction paper. The teacher will need some type of spray bottle to
test the weather pattern (rain).
- The overall goal is to have students thinking about the best and most effective way to
protect yourself from weather changes and how they can also affect you if you are not
protected under a stable structure.
