Use Facts as Passwords

Start a club with friends or at school where you learn about weather. Use the trivia questions as the way to gain entrance to each meeting, kind of like a secret password. Post the question outside the door and ask members to shout out their guess as they enter the room. At home, parents might set the daily or weekly Wi-Fi password as the answer to a weather trivia question.

Add Value to Science Projects

Make your science fair project stand out with weather facts from the trivia. Use one of the questions as the basis for your entire project. For instance, you could make your own tornado, and then include a trivia question and answer on your poster with interactive flaps.

Build a Trivia Mobile

Using construction paper and scissors, cut out clouds, rainbows, lightning bolts, snowflakes, and other types of weather. Cut out each trivia question and its corresponding answer. Glue the question to one side of a weather cutout and the answer to the other side. Punch a single hole in each weather cutout and attach them with string to a coat hanger for a fun and educational hanging mobile.
