Science & Sensory: Weather

Streamers in the wind added 4-18-99 Original Author Unknown

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 outside.

Windy Days added 3-23-00 Original Author Unknown

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

Rain Cloud added 1-06-01 Original Author Unknown 
Submitted by: Anonymous Visitor

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.

Tornado Twister added 5-20-01 Submitted by: Steven Carew

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.

Prisms added 7-20-02 Original Author Unknown 

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