in their previous lesson

Content :


A whole lot of things happen in the sky or atmosphere. But the fact is, what is happening in one place may be different from what is happening in another place. Use locations to explain to the kids the differences in weather. Remember, in senior classes, we define weather as the atmospheric condition of a place over a short period of time.

For instance, it may be raining in Lagos right now, but in Ogun , there could be very hot sun, in Ondo , there could be wind, etc.

It may be snowing in America right now, while Europe may be having heavy rain or sunshine.

Question : Things that can happen in the sky

Answer : Things that can happen in the sky:

Rain, sun, winds, lightening, storms, hurricanes, Tornadoes and snow.


(If the list is too much for your pupils to grasp, reduce it and stick to weather conditions that are common to your location.

However, this depends on your school programme.

If you are doing a blend of British and Nigerian curriculum, then, you must talk about tornadoes, hurricane and snow alongside rain, wind etc.)
