I loved that this lesson had students explore more than one type of weather map. My students really enjoyed looking at the different types and learning what for and how to use them. My students were able to make better connections to the maps they find on weather apps that they were familiar with. For my low performing students, I used edheads.com – Weather Maps activity to help remediate and build students up in their understanding. This really helped because it was leveled and my students could start out easy and then build.
