Printable Weather Busy Book

Today I’m sharing a printable weather busy book we plan on using for our mini weather unit for our preschooler. 

With that being said, we plan on keeping this one fairly simple: a load of books from the library, a few activities and experiments, and this busy book.

My main goal is to create more awareness to what’s going on outside, teach some valuable weather vocabulary, and have some convincing conversations about what to wear and what not to wear.

I won’t name names, but a certain four year old has been trying to convince me that she needs to put on her warm sweatshirt because its hot outside… I think a few good books and some fun resources will help me prove my case.

Weather Busy Book

Let’s talk about this busy book. As in most cases, I have put this up in my tpt store if you are interested in using it.

This is a 16 page, science download that teaches children about weather while building fine-motor and problem solving skills.

This weather busy book looks at the following:

  • basic weather terms
  • basic weather tools
  • thermometers
  • sunny, rainy, cloudy, partly cloudy, windy, stormy, and snowy days
  • appropriate gear/clothes for various weather scenarios

How to Assemble the Weather Busy Book:

This project is a little prep work up front, but the result is definitely worth it! After you print the pages you will need to laminate them, and cut them in half.

Then you will need to cut out the pieces on the pages that say ‘cut’. (These will be the moveable pieces that your child will attach to the pages.)

Attach the pieces, using clear velcro. (Don’t skimp on the velcro, or the book won’t withstand multiple uses.)

Lastly, put it together in a half 3-ring binder or have it bound at a local print shop. (Mine cost me about $3 to have bound.)

Materials:

Planning a Preschool or Kindergarten Weather Unit

Preschool is a great time to introduce weather concepts for kids. You don’t have to go super in depth. However, getting them to make daily observations of the weather, then teaching them how to dress and act appropriately is foundational.

This printable weather busy book would be a great addition to a preschool or kindergarten weather unit. Here are a few ideas and books you could also try…
