First prepare cards using the various words associated with the weather: Sunny, cloudy, rainy, snowy and hot, warm, cool, cold. Place the cards face down in two piles at the front of the room. Divide the class into two teams and have them line up at the cards. One by one, have them predict the weather by asking them, "How is the weather?" The students should answer along the lines of "It's sunny and hot." After they answer, turn over one card each from the two piles. If one matches, the student earns one point for their team. If both match, they earn three points. run through the whole class and then add up the points. Declare one team the winer and tell them that should all get jobs as meteorologists.
