Wonders of Wind

This past week has been windy {hello understatement}. So much so that Thomas asked, “Where does wind come from?”

We talked about climate changes, air pressure and conduction. Ten minutes later I asked him to explain it to me, and well… he needed some visuals.

Oh, did we have fun with that…

First, we painted with wind to show that it has a force and a direction.

We decided to use watercolors to show movements better. They had fun with blending the colors too.

Then we used matches and eggs to demonstrate air pressure. The kids {especially Thomas} loved this. We originally used 1 match, which caused a minor pull on the egg… then worked up to 4 matches causing the egg to split into two. {did I mention Thomas loved this?}

Finally, they drew what we did.

We are home free! Hope your weekend is not too windy!
