Weather stories program

SCVWD Education Outreach 2018-19 Library Programming Descriptions

Title of Program: Weather stories with Santa Clara Valley Water District

Description: Weather stories is a fun and interactive activity that helps students explore weather through stories and art. The activity helps students learn about different weather conditions and how seasons affect the weather. After the presentation students create their own weather wheel to help track the weather every day.

Learning Outcomes: Knowledge of preparedness for upcoming weather changes and to better understand our local climate through observation.

Cost/Supplies: No cost, but we normally bring weather wheel activity sheets for the children, so having crayons and/or markers available would be nice.

Availability: Open availability depending on dates requested, we can accommodate both morning, mid-day and early afternoons.   

Prep Time/Duties: The room can be set up theater style with open area in front for smaller children to sit in front. It would also be great to have the room set up with one-two tables for handouts and props/materials.

Attendance limits: If more than 50 participants, please notify us in advance so we can prepare additional materials.  If less than 10, please also notify us so we can prepare less materials.  

Public Blurb: Join the Santa Clara Valley Water District’s Education Outreach team and learn about the weather through our interactive Weather Stories presentation. Weather stories is a fun program that teaches the students to observe different weather patterns through the seasons as they look at pictures and listen to stories. Students will also have the opportunity to create their own weather wheel for tracking the weather. Following the story-time, staff will have handouts available on water conservation, rebates, upcoming workshops as well as family emergency planning and flood preparedness.
