In this Xpeditions lesson, young students are introduced to the El Niño phenomenon by doing a brief experiment and looking at pictures of El Niño, including some pictures drawn by kindergarten and first grade students who experienced an El Niño season. They then draw their own pictures and write about how El Niño might affect their area.
