Weather Versus Climate Poster

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 1 page | Grades: 5 - 6

A poster explaining the difference between weather and climate.

Weather is temporary and only lasts hours or days at the most. Climate, however, is the measurement of average weather conditions, such as temperature, rainfall, humidity, wind, or snow, for a particular region over many years.

Use this poster in the science classroom to help students differentiate between weather and climate.

Print out on tabloid paper and display in the classroom for students to reference throughout your weather and climate unit, or print out on letter-size paper and have students glue into their science journal to reference at home or while working in small groups. Alternatively, use the Google slide version to share with your students virtually.

Use the drop-down menu to choose which version works best for you and your students.
