Here's a great way to teach about cloud identification and classification! Each child makes their own Nature-Watch Weather Window - a hand-held frame with a variety of cloud types classified by altitude. Kit includes cardboard frames and cloud pictures. Participants will cut out each picture and glue them onto their very own Weather Window! Then, head outside and match real clouds to the photos. Identify the cloud type and discuss what type of weather might follow as a result. Our ...
