Cloud Study

What is cloud? How are they form? Why are there so many different types?

For children to understand what cloud is, they ought to understand what the water cycle is. (evaporation, condensation, precipitation, collection)
After learning about the facts, they understand what cloud is, and different types of clouds form in different height and temperature.

Here we have a collection of children's art works on cumulus, stratus, cirrus, nimbus, and more clouds.

After trying out all types of clouds using different types of brushes to get the same texture that each cloud type has, we make our own cloud detector!

They have labeled all the clouds they studied and decorated the cloud detector. They will look through the detector to see what type of cloud that is formed in the sky everyday, and they will not look at the sky the same way before!!

I will post more pictures of children's final products!
