This week we have been studying all different kinds of weather. We came up with a list of different weather words, including rain, snow, tornado, sun, fog, and wind.  The students then learned a weather song that used our weather words. Most of the weather words we came up with were types of weather that can be seen, but we agreed wind is invisible. So how do we know it exists? Our discussion led us to make wind wands out of straws, pipe cleaners and ribbon. When the wind blows the ribbons blow with it. We tested our wind wands on the playground and discovered the wind blows in many different directions and at different speeds! Sometimes the ribbons moved slowly in the breeze, but when the wind picked up, the ribbons on the wind wands seemed to be flying! Below you can see our group using their wind wands on the playground.
