Weather Flashcards is a downloadable set of flashcards
having to do with weather. The set has four pictures per 8½-by-11
inch page and is in full color. Some of the flashcards have pictures
of a thermometer, ball lightning, condensation, evaporation, flash
flood, ice crystals, hail, and troposphere. Before the instructions,
the download states that the flashcards are designed to give your
student a handy "carry-along" that they can take anywhere they
go. Additional items needed include a printer and heavy paper (to
print out the pictures), a paper cutter or scissors (to cut them
out), and a hole punch and a C ring (so that you can take the pictures
wherever you go).
The instructions have two different ideas for how to use the flashcards.
The first is to write out the definitions on a separate card and
play mach-up, and the second is to use some of the words for spelling.
The instructions do not say what age the flashcards are for, but
I think that kids ages 7-13 would learn from and enjoy them. This
product would be great for homeschoolers who sometimes do school
on the go.
I think Weather Flashcards is a great and fun way to
learn about different types of weather! At the beginning of the
download, there is a teacher's guide that gives little definitions
for each picture. The instructions say that after the pictures
are printed and cut out, your student should write on the back
of each one and give a small definition of each. One thing that
I thought was a bit confusing was that in the teacher's guide,
there were 101 definitions, but there are 102 pictures; the last
picture does not have a definition.
Overall, Weather Flashcards is a great product. I enjoyed
it a lot, and the pictures were great! I would recommend this to
any person who wants to or should learn more about the weather.
