Become a human weather gauge!

It's time to use yourself as a piece of weather equipment.


Take your pupils outside to see and feel different weather conditions and translate that into how it makes them feel.

What do I need?

  • Paper, pens or equipment to record how you feel
  • You may want to make a five-day weather diary to fill in each day for a week

What do I do?

  1. Go outside, whatever the weather.
  2. Discuss the effect and how it makes you feel. For example: I can't feel any wind, I feel calm and happy, I can feel the sun on my skin, it's hot, my hair is blowing about, my hat's blown off - I feel excited!
  3. Don't forget to tell us when you have completed the activity! When you mark the activity as complete, you will be asked to upload a photo or a copy of your weather diary to help earn your award.

Completing the activity

Use the 'Mark as complete' button at the top of this page to tell us you've completed your activity. You'll need to show us what you did by uploading a photograph of you outside with a caption of how you’re feeling or upload a copy of your weather diary.
