Weather Worksheets for Middle School

If you’re looking for printable or Google Classroom weather worksheets for your middle school lessons, scroll to the bottom of this page.

For middle school, the NGSS weather standards are as follows:

MS- ESS2-5 Collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses result in changes in weather conditions.

MS- ESS2-6 Develop and use a model to describe how unequal heating and rotation of the Earth cause patterns of atmospheric and oceanic circulation that determine regional climates.

MS- ESS3-5 Ask questions to clarify evidence of the factors that have caused the rise in global temperatures over the past century.

Weather Worksheets

The Water Cycle

This guided reading covers everything your students need to know about the water cycle. I find that a lot of the available resources on the water cycle are too simple for middle school, so I created this one to be a bit more advanced. As a bonus, this resource is also completely Google Classroom friendly as it comes with a Google Slides version of the PDF file.

Density Virtual Lab

When it comes to teaching weather, there’s no way around density. This PhET sim gives students a great intro to the topic as they explore the idea that objects of similar size can have very different weights.
