In our Precipitation lesson plan, students learn all about various types of precipitation and how they differ. Students learn facts about rain, snow, hair, freezing rain, and sleet, and are asked to differentiate between them using the knowledge gained in this lesson.

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.

    Science Curriculum (All)

    I’ve used a number of these lesson plans for helping homeschool our grandson during the pandemic. Excellent material and real science - no myths, mumbo-jumbo or pseudoscience. I really appreciate that. I try to group 3 lesson plans together as a unit and it works very well for us. We also usually watch a few YouTube videos. Your videos don’t directly correspond to the lesson plans, but that’s pretty minor considering what I’m getting for the price! I do wish I were able to contribute more than the small donation I left for you a few weeks ago. Thanks again - T

    amazing lesson plans

    I just started homeschooling this year due to COVID-19. This site and lesson plans have saved me a lot of time and effort when it comes to figuring out what to teach and making up lesson plans.

    Homeschool lesson

    I had some trouble downloading it at first. I contacted customer service and had excellent service. It took a few days to the resolve the issue but they kept me informed the whole way. This lesson was worth the wait. It has great information and extras that saves me time having to look stuff up on my own. Lesson plan is easy to follow. I can’t wait to teach it.

    Homeschool lessons

    I am a new homeschool parent so when I came across this website I was thrilled!! It gives you information to go over, practice and homework. On top of that it also gives a list of videos and additional worksheets. As for this particular lesson I could not open it due to an error but they are working to fix it but as for all the other lessons I got they are awesome!!!
