It's already one of my favorite science units to teach because it is so interactive!
We make our own wind vanes to observe the wind's direction.
We make a class anemometer to observe the wind's speed.
Students make "practice" thermometers that they can use with a partner to quiz each other on reading thermometers correctly.
Students bring in water bottles so they can construct their own rain gauges.
We also do a few fun experiments like this one that shows us how clouds work!
(Just a shaving cream cloud sitting on top of water. Students add water droplets (food coloring) one at a time and when the cloud gets too full, they will begin to fall (rain).
Since my school requires us to use Interactive Notebooks for science. I have made it my mission this year to create them in the same "No-Cut" format that I use for math...it has made my life so much more sane! :)
You can grab it below, if you're interested. It has recording pages that we use for all of these tools, plus more!
