    I alternate years of having the weatherman from our local newsstation come to our classroom and my kids taking a field trip to the nearest weather center.

    Each child has to come up with 5 questions and I submit them to the speaker ahead of time. Last visit, we watched video of 5 tornadoes we had in Myrtle Beach, only 15 miles from us!

    The NOAA website has an education section. It's wonderful. They also have some neat free printables.

    We live near the beach so I can tie in weather and erosion/environment.

    We keep a daily weather calendar, date,sky cover and graph it monthly.

    We walked around campus to study cloud types and had the kids draw them and then they would write a funny story.

    We're in a hurricane area, so we do alot of research on hurrican names, etc. Again, use NOAA for weather information!!!
