Work together to produce your very own weather show!
• Cloud type
Make a Prediction:
Print out the weather icons you want to use. You’ll find them in the printable PDF.
Make a map of your local area for the background. Newsprint is great for this!
Come up with a fun “weather name” for the broadcast. Here’s some ideas.
- Cumulus Jacket
- Aurora Borealis
- Bolt Lightening
- Hurricane Harry
- Tsunami Ali
- Windy Wendy
- Misty Showers
“And now over to our weather with Misty Showers!” See how well that works? The naming part is necessary!
Now you are ready to write the script!
Set the stage
Set up your background, grab a costume, have fun!
Let the kids help you with the tech and just go! Broadcast LIVE on Facebook or save your video and add great sound effects and music. Then share it!
Record outside for great lighting and actually experience the weather.
If you want to do a little more with your video, here are a few extra resources for you.
iMovie – I hear this is THE best video editing software for iOS.
Movavi – This is what I use on desktop. It is a little pricey to buy for just one activity but you could download the free trial.
YouTube Audio Library – A huge variety of free music and sound effects for your videos.
We’d love to see your videos! So tag us on social media or send us a link to your broadcast.
