Outdoor Nature Hour...Weather

We began a brief study of weather with this nature study challenge.  We started by reading the book Weather Words by Gail Gibbons.  After reading the book we watched one of the you tube videos recommended on the challenge page.

Here are the little ones enjoying the videos on weather.
Here are the clouds we observed after learning about weather...
The temperature was 40 degrees.
The wind seemed to be blowing from the Northwest.
We saw two types of clouds.  Boo said that one looked like tractor tracks.  I thought the other looked like a blanket over the sky.

The boys created a nature journal entry by drawing clouds on blue construction paper and cutting it out and taping it into their notebooks.  They noted the temperature and wind direction.
