Give each child two crepe paper streamers,
about 3 feet long, and a dowel or a cardboard paper towel tube. Have the
children tape their streamers to their dowels or tubes. Then let them
experiment with moving their streamers in the wind as they parade around

Notice the wind...Feel the wind as it blows
your hair and across your cheeks. Listen to the wind in the trees.

Need: crock pot, water and flashlight.
Directions: Set up crock pot half full of
water and set on high with lid on (away from kids reach of course). After
water has condensed on lid show kids how the lid is like a cloud full of
water droplets. Pick lid up and explain that as the water droplets form
together they get too heavy to stay in the cloud and (turn lid on side)
then it rains. After lid is off turn off lights and shine flashlight over
crock pot so children can see the "cloud" of evaporation.

The coke bottle twister. You get two 2 liter bottles or you can use any
size bottle and put some water in one of them just a little under half and
either tape them together or you can buy bottle connectors and put them
together. The turn it upside down and shake it in a circular motion to
make a virtual tornado. For added fun put food coloring in the water to
change the color of the water ( about 2-4 drops is enough) and for more
fun put beads, little animals, or even glitter in there to make it sparkle
in the light. I like to teach tornado safety with this activity.

Provide several prisms for the children to explore in the light and
sunlight. A great way to explore rainbows.
