Weather lacing cards
When I was teaching in the classroom I would always look forward to our topic investigation on ‘weather’.
What is your favourite type of weather?
Weather is usually taught as part of a science unit of work.

In Australia teachers are expected to support children in exploring change in the world around them, including changes that impact on them, such as the weather.
Level 1, children are to explore daily and seasonal weather patterns and how different groups describe them.
Children are to anticipate near future events such as personal milestones and seasons.
Oh my gosh, there really is so much to cover when teaching a weather topic.
Thinking beyond the usual activities
For a bit of fun, I created these gorgeous weather themed lacing cards.
Ideal to add to any literacy centre or exploration table, the weather pieces in this pack include :
Large 16 x lacing cards.
- sun/cloud – overcast
- storm cloud with lightening
- rain cloud
- snow cloud
- thermometer temperature gauge
- hygrometer temperature gauge
- wind sock
All lacing cards require laminating and holes to be made where indicated.
To prepare these weather lacing cards, you’ll need :
- printable of weather lacing cards
- hole punch
- curling ribbon, wool and plastic needle or similar
Begin by printing out your lacing cards and laminating them.
Cut them out.
Grab your hole punch and punch holes in the clearly illustrated spots.
Purpose – Children go about weaving their way in and out of the holes around each of the weather related lacing cards.
Creating a lovely invitation to play and thread is a wonderful idea and a subtle way to get your children to develop their fine motor skills.
