Weather and Wind Socks

We have been learning lots about Weather this week.  We have documented things we think we know about weather, new learning about weather and our wonderings.  We have been keeping track of weather and temperature daily in our Science Journal.  We have also been exploring about wind.  Wind is moving air.  A windsock is a tool that is used to determine what direction the wind is coming from and how hard it is blowing.  We made our own windsocks on Wednesday and decided to try them out to see if they really worked.


We decorated the windsocks and added some crepe paper streamers to them.


Next, we rolled them and taped them so they could stay in the shape of a tube.  Then we took them outdoors (like REAL scientists) to test the windsocks to see if they really worked.  They DID!!!
