Weather Themed Activities for Preschool: A Preschool Thematic Unit

We read so many amazing books, some just for fun, and others with some pretty awesome factual information that helped Little Miss 3 learn so much about weather. She is simply fascinated by it all now and to hear her talk on and on about everything she learned makes my teacher mama heart happy.
