Learning About the Weather

These are a couple of the books I used to teach Sky and Alexa about clouds. They did pages in their nature journals, too.

Alexa drew and colored the different types of clouds (above) and labeled them. Skylar did that, too, (below) but also had to write a description of each type. Sorry, I know the pictures are kind of dark.We also printed out these and keep them as reference to use in the van. We got them from this great site.

Taylor has been doing weather pages for her science/nature notebook, too. She uses her creativity, but also has to be informative.

Taylor used many resources for her pages, but I don't have time to list them right now. Most of them are in my Amazon booklist in my sidebar.

All the girls seem to retain a good bit of what we cover by doing it this way. And they always enjoy the "art" part of it, too.
