Drawing Conclusions

In this weather forecasting activity, learners determine the location of cold and warm fronts on weather plot maps. Learners use colored pencils to mark up and analyze surface pressure, air temperature, dewpoint, and pressure change on different maps. Learners will discover how forecasters label and extrapolate information from weather maps. This resource includes analysis and discussion questions and solutions. This resource also includes tips about flood safety.
