Harnessing the Wind in Pre-K3 and Pre-K4

POSTED 5.3 Wind and Science in Pre-K3 and Pre-K4
The Pre-K classes were studying the weather in science class with Mrs. Pat Whiffen, learning about clouds, how the moving air can push and change clouds’ shapes and how to make predictions about the weather based on what they observe.
To dive deeper into their studies of the wind, Pre-K3 and Pre-K4 students made wind socks, pinwheels and kites to harness the wind. They then learned how to determine which way the wind was blowing using their wind sock, pinwheel or kite. Based on the direction that their creation, or pieces of their creation, was moving in, students figured out which direction the wind was blowing from, and had fun using their imaginations to build and decorate a helpful tool.
Nice work Pre-K students!
