23 Science: Clouds

Objective:

Students will learn to recognize cloud types and recreate them on the second page using cotton.

Materials:

  • Pencils, either colored or graphite
  • Science Sheets for Week 23
  • Cotton batting
  • Glue

Directions:

  • Review the Cycle 4 Week 23 Science Sheet with your students.
  • Point to the types of clouds and discuss what they look like.  For example, a Cirrus cloud looks wispy.
  • Ask your students to add just a bit of glue and cotton to their Cirrus square and make wispy clouds.
  • Repeat for each of the clouds.
  • Discuss the elevations of each type of cloud.  You might read the descriptions for each as the students are creating their clouds.
  • We do not mention Nimbostratus clouds in our song or on this page.  Point these out and ask your students what type of rain comes from these clouds.
