This bulletin is one in a series of environmental education activity guides for grades K-12, developed and field-tested by teachers in the Montgomery County (Maryland) Public Schools. Primarily for use in the middle grades four through six, the guides are not intended to constitute complete units in themselves. They are, rather, a compilation of activities considered appropriate for particular environmental studies. In this guide about the weather, for grades four through six, are activities entitled: Observing Weather, Understanding Humidity, Measuring Humidity, Relating Humidity to Other Elements of Weather, Constructing a Barometer, Using a Barometer to Measure Air Pressure, Constructing a Weather Vane, Using a Weather Vane to Find Wind Direction, and Weather Predicting. Indicated for each activity are the instructional objective, procedures to follow, and materials required. Teacher notes are added when necessary. A student evaluation sheet concludes the bulletin. Related documents in the series are SE 015 885 through SE 015 886 and SE 015 888 through SE 015 893. (BL)
