How Does it Rain?

We need the rain, so it has been a blessing. My older two boys have asked me a few questions about the rain and what makes it rain. I always do my best to explain in clear, simple words, and I'm always met with the same question, "But how does it rain? " Clearly my explanations are not doing the trick. 20 Must-Try Winter Science Experiments for Kids. Weather Window: Cloud Identification & Weather Prediction Activity Kit For Kids. Here's a great way to teach about cloud identification and classification!

Weather Window: Cloud Identification & Weather Prediction Activity Kit For Kids

Each child makes their own Nature-Watch Weather Window - a hand-held frame with a variety of cloud types classified by altitude. Kit includes cardboard frames and cloud pictures. Participants will cut out each picture and glue them onto their very own Weather Window! Then, head outside and match real clouds to the photos. Identify the cloud type and discuss what type of weather might follow as a result. Our exclusive activity guide provides all of the information needed to teach about cloud identification - even if the instructor has no previous knowledge on this subject. Please note: this kit requires a considerable amount of cutting. Unit Goals and Concepts: Discover clouds and weather in an exciting way. Materials Included: All the materials you'll need to make your Weather Windows. General: National Science Education Standard NS.K-4.2, NS.K-4.4 and NS.5-8.4 Physical Science and Earth and Space Sciences. How to Make a Real Rainbow.

Science Experiments at Home. I never would have thought I could help my son make his own anemometer to measure wind speed!

Science Experiments at Home

How cool! Dr. Mollie Cule Reboots the Robot inspired me to give it a try. This book breaks down the experiments into easy to follow steps, but my favorite part is the language they use to explain WHY things happen. Activities. *Cloud in a Jar with Calvin* Supplies: Glass jar with lid (or use a small bowl/plate to act as a lid) Hot water Ice Dark colored paper Aerosol (i.e. hairspray or air refreshener) or Matches Flashlight (optional) Directions.


Primary Reading Party: Plants. We finished up learning about plants today in Kindergarten.

Primary Reading Party: Plants

Some of the plants grew quite a bit while others didn't. Here are are some of the bigger ones! Here is the document I created for labeling their pots! We discussed the parts of the plants and their roles. Using a sheet from Mailbox Magazine, we glued them into our science journals and labeled the parts of a flower. E is for Explore!: Precipitation, Evaporation, Transpiration, Condensation. Precipitation - Make it Rain!

E is for Explore!: Precipitation, Evaporation, Transpiration, Condensation

Transpiration - Collect Plant Sweat! Learn about transpiration through this hands on experiment from Weird Science Kids. By tying a large baggie around a plant's leaves on a super hot, sunny day, you will demonstrate how transpiration is part of the water cycle. Pour the water from the plant into a measuring cup. Kids use their measuring skills to figure out how much water the plant produced. How to make a weather station. When she wakes up in the morning L likes to check the weather app on my phone to see what’s forecast for the day.

I think she likes the animated visual of the rain or the shining sun but she’s also interested in the temperature. We haven’t had such a cold winter this year but there have been a few days when the temperature has dipped below zero and L is fascinated that something can be less than nothing. We decided we’d investigate further and try to make our own weather station to check if the weather forecasters on the phone get it right. There are few different ways the children can be involved in setting this up and you can decide whether you want to looking at the sky, the wind, the temperature or the rain.

A weather station project also gives you lots of scope to include many different aspects of learning: observation, recording data, graphing, guessing and estimating, taking notes and translating results in to real-life consequences. How to Make Fog in a Bottle: Science Experiment for Kids. Simple Science - Ice Cube Experiment. When my twins go to Kindergarten, I have the chance to spend come one-on-one time with my youngest.

Simple Science - Ice Cube Experiment

Some of this time is spent playing, some is spent in a test of wills (she is 3 going on 13) and some time is spent learning new concepts. I am all about learning activities like Rising Raisins and Chemical Reactions for Preschoolers that are easy to set up and use items I already have at home. This Ice Cube Experiment is similar in that it only requires four materials that you probably already have. Making It Rain. Rainbow Science Experiments. Summer Cloud Science.

Booking Across the USA - Twisters in Kansas. Today we are one of 50+ blogs hosting a fantastic 'Booking Across the USA' blog project!

Booking Across the USA - Twisters in Kansas

Together, we will each feature a kids' book and activity for all of the 50 States -- you can travel across the country right from your own couch :-) This amazing idea was the creation of Growing Book by Book, a wonderful blog with great ideas for sharing books with kids. Read and learn along with us as we criss-cross the country! The home of sunflowers, BBQ, wheat fields and tornadoes! I'll bet that I can guess what book comes to mind when you hear the name 'Kansas' -- Is it the one that shares the adventures of Dorothy??! I really think that book put Kansas on the map for kids literature.
