Check out this science fun! As I reflect on this lesson, I am floored at how many content areas we covered. First science, but not just weather, force and motion too. The students had to blow their clouds (cotton balls) with a variety of strengths of wind. They MEASURED the distance their clouds traveled. Hello MATH! They recorded the data while also cooperating with each other to complete the task.
Here are my kiddos in action below!
We also working on arrays in math and we created some pretty fun cloud arrays to hang in the hall. I forgot to grab a picture so I will have to add it tomorrow.
Check out our Cloud Flip books too! They go perfectly with The Cloud Book by Tomie DePola!
All of these weather activities are in my Weather Unit if you are interested.
