Understanding the world focus – weather

 

Look at the weather symbols – think about the following questions:

  • Have you seen these before?
  • Where might you have seen them?
  • What can they be used for?
  • What does each one represent?
  • Do you think the weather picture matches what it means?

 

In the story Noi went into the cave because there was a storm – do you think if he had seen the weather forecast for that day he would have gone out?

 

Here is a clip of a weather forecast that is on the television.
