Offline Lessons

1

Talk about how we know when it is windy. We can’t actually see the wind but we can see its effect on other objects e.g. trees bending, windmills turning etc.

 

Make a windsock, pinwheel windmill or kite using whatever materials you can find. Below are one set of instructions you could use.

 

2

Talk together about light and dark.

What gives us light in the day? (The sun)

What does light help us to do? (See things) (It also give us heat).

Talk about what happens when the sun goes down at night (it gets darker and cooler)

Talk about what happens when something blocks rays of light (it causes a shadow).

Explain that when clouds block the Sun we feel cooler and it isn't as bright. Some light can shine through. Clouds don't block the light fully. When the sun shines on us, we block the light. They sun doesn't shine through us. Explore what happens by making shadow puppets. Pretend the puppet is us and the torch is the sun. 

 

3

Learn what each of the weather symbols mean on the forecast.

Make a weather mobile. Can you write labels to hang up with your symbols?

 

 

 

4

Watch the weather

 

Watch the weather through the window each day. Gather a selection of clothes for different weathers. Call out different kinds of weather and get your child to change into the appropriate clothes for that weather (like the dressing up race). Alternatively, encourage your child to look outside at the weather or look at the forecast and involve them in deciding what they should put on in the morning.

 

Make a chart similar to the one below on paper to show what you know or have noticed about different kinds of weather.

 

5

Make a rain gauge and keep a record of how much rain falls.

Make a rainbow

© Valeriy Surujiu | Dreamstime.com

 

Demonstrations don’t get much simpler than this. You have likely even found yourself conducting this experiment by accident on a warm and sunny day. Fill three-quarter of a glass with water and move the glass and a white sheet of paper toward a sunny window. Place the paper on a nearby table or windowsill and hold the water glass above it. Watch as the sunlight passes through the glass, bends and forms a rainbow on the blank page. In the sky, rainbows form when sunlight refracts or bends just like it did when it passed through the water and onto your paper. Do not be fooled, there are more colours to a rainbow than the six or seven you can see with your eyes. That’s just one weather myth. 

 

Optional - draw a picture of what happened.

Write a sentence - e.g. "Rainbows happen when we get rain and sun together. "
