Intermediates set up frost cans to revisit later.
Push to the end of the table, where they will not be touched.
What kinds of weather can you think of?
Today we will make some mini versions of weather phenomena in the classroom, to see how they come about.
Kindergarten instead made rainbows with CDs etc.
Discuss how the sun shining through water droplets makes rainbows in the same way. With your back to the sun they appear in front of you.
Why is the sky blue and sunsets red activity.
Frost can revisit with intermediates:
What do you see? How did it get there? Dew. Frost. If these had formed up in the air, what would they be? Rain/snow/hail. Dew in the desert is critical for some plants and animals, that collect it on their leaves and bodies.
Lightning (with intermediates)
Clouds and tornados.
Added bottle vortices if time.
Weather phenomena are caused by water in the air, temperature differences that make air move around, and pressure differences that can moves air and make water condense. By mixing and matching these three things in different amounts, we get all kinds of weather phenomena.
