Weather Science!

It’s supposed to get windy around here today, so I thought I’d link to some fun, simple weather experiments. Click each image to go to the original instructions:

First, this experiment uses shaving cream and food colouring to demonstrate rain:

Next, this experiment uses scarves to illustrate wind:

Finally, this is a simple tornado demonstration, using dish soap and vinegar:

Asking each child what they think will happen before doing the experiment is a great way to introduce the idea of creating a hypothesis!
