This resource is your one stop solution for lessons that finish too early and days when you need to review in a fun way! This set of Weather Prediction Task Cards is super versatile and can be used in many ways!
- Cloud Types
- Air Pressure
Who is this resource for?
This resource can be used by classroom teachers, tutors, and parents of students in grades 6-9. It provides a variety of practice covering the mentioned topics.
How Can I Use this Resource?
- An independent work station in a set of stations
- Differentiation – Assign these task cards as reteaching for students who have yet to show mastery.
- Creation of independent work students who are not able to be present for direct instruction.
- Extension activity for early finishers or for students who show a special interest in the topic
- Use as a square on a Choice Board
- Scavenger hunt – Hide cards around the room for students to find. Great for students who need to be moving!

NGSS Standards covered by these weather prediction practice questions:
MS-ESS2-5 Collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses result in changes in weather conditions. Emphasis is on how air masses flow from regions of high pressure to low pressure, causing weather (defined by temperature, pressure, humidity, precipitation, and wind) at a fixed location to change over time, and how sudden changes in weather can result when different air masses collide. Emphasis is on how weather can be predicted within probabilistic ranges. Examples of data can be provided to students (such as weather maps, diagrams, and visualizations) or obtained through laboratory experiments (such as with condensation). Assessment does not include recalling the names of cloud types or weather symbols used on weather maps or the reported diagrams from weather stations.
