Weather Reporter, a second-grade Earth and space science unit, provides students with opportunities in a scenario-based approach to observe, measure, and analyze weather phenomena. The overarching concept of change reinforces students’ decisions as they learn about the changes in the Earth’s weather and observe, measure, and forecast the weather.

Weather Reporter was developed by the Center for Gifted Education at The College of William and Mary to offer advanced curriculum supported by years of research. The Center’s materials have received national recognition from the United States Department of Education and the National Association for Gifted Children, and they are widely used both nationally and internationally.

Each of the books in this series offers curriculum that focuses on advanced content and higher level processes. The science units contain simulations of real-world problems, and students experience the work of real science by using data-handling skills, analyzing information, and evaluating results. The mathematics units provide sophisticated ideas and concepts, challenging extensions, higher order thinking skills, and opportunities for student exploration based on interest. These materials are a must for any teacher seeking to challenge and engage learners and increase achievement.

Review: Midwest Book Review - January 1, 2010
Weather is something we face every day, and its elements astound young learners . . . Focusing on how weather is reported and how the meteorologists on TV and other weather reporters present their results, there is no shortage of fun activities to encourage learning in those gifted second graders. “Weather Reporter” is a top pick for science and education collections focusing on gifted and talented students.
