Spring Weather is a welcome change for many of us around the world. The longer days and warmer temperatures give more time for outdoor activities. We have seen a variety of weather conditions in our neighborhood including more snow, hail, and then back to sunny days again.
This week you can click over the the Spring Weather Challenge for the specifics of this challenge.
Here are some suggestions:
- Have your children describe any clouds they see in the sky.
- Notice how hard the wind is blowing by how things are moving: leaves rustling, trees bending, etc.
- Notice the wind’s direction. Where is it coming from?
- Describe the temperature of the air and/or look it up on a thermometer.
- Notice any precipitation that you may have this week: sprinkles, rain, mist, sleet, snow, fog, hail.
Follow up can include the notebook page from the Spring Ebook, the free Seasonal Weather PDF, or an entry in your own nature journal. You can also print out this activity and use it to identify clouds that you observe in your nature study: Cloud Key.
