Yes, it can be sunny and windy at the same time. You can record your weather observations on the attached Weather Record or make your own using a piece of paper.

Temperature Recording: For the next 5 days and with the help of an adult or older sibling, find out the temperature outside using a cell phone or tablet with a weather application. Color in the thermometer or create your own on a piece of paper. On a new piece of paper write down the temperature and draw a picture of what you would wear and write a sentence.

Salga por 5 días aproximadamente a la misma hora cada día. Haz un dibujo de cómo es el clima: soleado, lluvioso, frío, cálido, ventoso. ¿Podrían ser dos cosas? Sí, puede ser soleado y ventoso al mismo tiempo. Puede registrar sus observaciones meteorológicas en un Registro meteorológico adjunto o hacer las suyas propias con una hoja de papel.

Observación de la temperatura:
Durante los próximos 5 días y con la ayuda de un hermano mayor o adulto, averigüe la temperatura exterior usando un teléfono celular o tableta con una aplicación meteorológica. Colorea el termómetro o crea el tuyo en una hoja de papel. En una nueva hoja de papel, escriba la temperatura y haga un dibujo de lo que usaría y escriba una oración.
