The Wonders of Weather


  What is the difference between the weather today and yesterday? What kind of effect do you think clouds have on weather? What makes one cloud different from another?
  Students will create "cloudscapes" to demonstrate their understanding of cirrus, stratus, cumulus, and cumulonimbus clouds.
  Step 1:
In groups of two you will explore to websites that are all about weather and climate! One person in the group should be taking notes on the different traits of the clouds.
Once you have completed a description for each type of cloud, I encourage you to explore and enjoy the different features of the website.
(15 minutes)
Step 2:
Now that you have done your research, you will be creating your cloudscapes!
You may use crayons, blue construction paper, scissors, cotton balls, and glue to create your pictures!
(15 minutes)

Now that we have created our cloudscapes, I would like a few volunteers to share 1 fact that they have learned about clouds and to show off your cloudscape to the rest of the class.
  Useful websites to explore:
  With your partner, you will be writing a short summary about the four types of clouds. If you collected any other information during your research, you may also include that in your summary. Summary must be at least 1/2 page or longer.
I hope you all enjoyed this activity!
  After completing this activity you should have an understanding of how clouds form, the traits of the four main clouds, as well as some knowledge of the special types of clouds. I encourage you all to continue exploring the websites you visited today. We will be revisiting these sites again when we start our lesson on hurricanes!
