As part of our Curious Kids project on weather, the children in Foundation 4 have been exploring all about the wind. They learned about what the wind is and how it can be measured – by speed and direction. They then explored what happened when you changed the speed and direction of the wind through experimenting with blowing down straws at different objects and paint. The following week the children learnt about weather reports and decided to become weather reporters themselves.
They made some beautiful wind socks and hung them in the trees outside so they could see what speed and direction the wind was blowing in and report on it.
