Our Precipitation lesson plan explores the differences between the types of precipitation and can be used in conjunction with lessons related to the weather or water cycle. During this lesson, students are asked to tell whether each given fact is about Rain, Snow, Hail, Freezing Rain or Sleet in order t demonstrate their understanding of each type of precipitation. Students are also asked to answer questions about different types of precipitation.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define precipitation, identify, describe, and compare the different types of precipitation.
