Clouds (2-07) 12/16/2007
 

Read pages 8-15 in Eyewitness Explorers Weather aloud. Talked about different cloud types and different layers of the atmosphere. Used Earth's Atmosphere to find temperatures in all the different layers from troposphere to exosphere. I read Weather Forcasting by Gail Gibbons aloud. We talked about making weather stations and how they are used.
Made a thermometer from alcohol and water. Tested different temperatures to see what difference it made.

 

Did experiment #149 in 200 Gooey, Slippery, Slimy, Weird and Fun Experiements by Janice VanCleave.. The nephoscope helped teach the picklets how meterologists determine wind direction in the upper air.


 

When we got back inside I gave the picklets a list of the cloud names and they looked up the definitions of the clouds and wrote them down. (Will make lapbook on clouds) ©2007WickedPicklesHomeschool
