This month we had the opportunity to get together with friends and do some fun science experiments that were weather related. The kids had tons of fun....everything is more fun with friends! The first one was all about clouds. The kids learned about Cirrus, Cumulus and Stratus clouds and even got to make 'clouds' in a bottle!
First, we put all the right ingredients to make a cloud in the bottle. You can't see it in the picture, but when we would change the air pressure by squeezing the bottle and then let go, a little puff of white cloud would appear. It was really neat! :)
Later we made a cloud mobile with examples of the three kinds of clouds we learned about that day.
Here, our finished mobile found a home!
We plan to do more weather experiments with friends next month too, so there will be more to come!
