Preschool Lesson Plan - Rain & Weather

  1. 1. Preschool Weather Theme about Rain www.activityschoolbus.comWhat is Rain:When lots of tiny droplets of water in a cloud get bigger and heavier, the clouds get bigand can not hold all of the heavy water. This water falls to the earth and we see it as rain.Rain is good for our earth. It waters our grass, trees, flowers, plants, gives drinks to ouranimals, and also for us.Rain helps seeds planted in the dirt grow into plants, flowers, fruits and vegetable in ourgardens, and helps keep things clean by washing away dirt on the streets, sidewalks,buildings, and on our rooftops.Rain can be heavy, or light. Light rain can be called a ‘drizzle’. Heavy rain can be calleda downpour.When it rains, turn off the lights, and make no noise. Just sit there and listen and look outthe window. You will hear the rain make a beautiful noise as it taps on the windows androoftops.Rain creates puddles, mud, and makes our ponds, streams, and creeks bigger.When there is a bad thunderstorm the rain will be heavy; and if it is really windy, the raincan blow sideways.If we stand outside when it rains we will get very wet; but if we stand under an umbrella,we will stay dry and everything around us will get wet.Activity: When it is raining outside, set out a rain gauge and collect the rain for thattime. When the rain stops, get the rain gauge and document on a piece of paper howmuch rain was collected. Do this all spring and summer and document the amount ofrain collected on the same piece of paper. When summer is over, look back at yourdocumented paper and see which day had the most rain fall.*For more preschool themes please visit, www.activityschoolbus.comOr Join Our Fanpage: www.facebook.com/preschoollearningonline
