Topic of study:  water cycle and weather patterns: Lesson 2- What conditions affect the water cycle. 

The 5th grade will have an opportunity to gather information from our weather station and announce the weather of the day to the whole school every morning.  Each student will work with a partner.  We will begin this after we have studied all about weather.  Here is the fun poem the students will memorize and excite each morning before reporting the weather:

“Whether the weather will be fine, 

Or whether the weather be not,

Whether the weather will be cold,

Or whether the weather will be hot,

We’ll weather the weather

Whatever the weather, 

Whether we like it or not.”
