For Grades 2, 4, and 6

Join our team of meteorologists to determine the weather and storms happening at Roper Mountain. We’ll identify common tools used by meteorologists to predict weather.


Obtain and communicate information about severe weather conditions to explain why certain safety precautions are necessary.

Analyze and interpret data from observations and measurements to describe local weather conditions (including temperature, wind, and forms of precipitation).

Analyze local weather data to predict daily and seasonal patterns over time.


Analyze and interpret data from observations, measurements, and weather maps to describe patterns in local weather conditions (including temperature, precipitation, wind speed/direction, relative humidity, and cloud types) and predict changes in weather over time.

Obtain and communicate information about severe weather phenomena (including thunderstorms, hurricanes, and tornadoes) to explain steps humans can take to reduce the impact of severe weather phenomena.

Analyze and interpret data from weather conditions (including wind speed and direction, air temperature, humidity, cloud types, and air pressure), weather maps, satellites, and radar to predict local weather patterns and conditions.

Develop and use models to explain how relationships between the movement and interactions of air masses, high and low pressure systems, and frontal boundaries result in weather conditions and storms (including thunderstorms, hurricanes and tornadoes).
