Here is an excellent free resource for teachers.  This is written to go with exhibits at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, however, it can be modified to use in the classroom without visiting the museum.  If you live close enough to Austin, Texas, to take a field trip then I highly recommend this excellent museum.

The “Wild Texas Weather” Educator Guide (from the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum) includes free printable worksheets for students covering weather in Texas:

  • Weather changes (temperatures & precipitation)
  • Air masses
  • How weather impacts people
  • Droughts
  • Floods
  • Tornadoes
  • Hurricanes
  • Forecasting weather
  • Additional Web Sites
  • TEKS objective
