Activity Overview


Storyboard That is a great way for students to organize observations about the weather. In this activity, students will create a weather journal for a full week. This is a great activity to complete and share your results with other schools in your country, or even around the world using some app smashing!

Students can upload their own photos of the weather into the storyboards and describe them, or they can use the scenes and items on Storyboard That. In addition, to create visualizations of what the weather looks like, students can also create illustrations of measurements they have taken. Students can take the following measurements about atmospheric conditions and add them to their diaries.


  • Air Pressure - Air pressure is measured using a barometer, often using the unit millibar.
  • Temperature - Temperature can be measured using a thermometer. Temperature can fluctuate throughout the day, so the average temperature can be measured, or maximum and minimum temperatures can be recorded.
  • Amount of Precipitation - This is measured as the amount of water that has fallen. It is normally recorded in a graduated cylinder in millimeters.
  • Cloud Coverage - This is a measure of how much of the sky is covered by clouds. It is measured in Okta and ranges from 0, meaning completely clear skies, to 8, meaning the sky is completely cloudy.
