Cloud Watching

Question - What are clouds made of?

Children's answers
- bits of fluff
- bits of fluff and the sky
- sky and wind
- water (correct!!)

 Today we made a Cloud Finder and talked about the different types of clouds and how they can help us to predict the weather.

We then headed outside and used our Cloud Finder to classify the clouds that we could see in our sky. This helped us to fill in our Cloud Watcher chart – time/date, cloud type, AM weather, predicted PM weather and Actual PM Weather.

We will fill this chart in each morning and afternoon for the next two weeks, use the data to compare our predictions to the actual weather and create a cloud graph.

The lovely thing is that I am actually learning about clouds and how to predict the weather with them.
