Mallory did a science lesson on clouds. We found this activity on Pinterest and if you get a chance to try it, you should! It takes little preparation and the kids are fascinated with what happens!
this sheet (or click on the picture below) and cotton balls. They stretch the cotton balls to look like each type of cloud. The Nimbus cloud (thunder cloud) could be drawn with crayon or marker OR the cotton ball could be colored with black marker. We copied the worksheet onto blue paper.
The children put drops of water onto the shaving cream and watch and watch until finally it begins to rain! How cool is that!
