7 fun weather experiments to do at home with free ebook
Recently, we have had fun doing weather experiments at home, which all came about because of the crazy thunderstorms that we had been having. I figured if my son could ‘see’ what was happening when we have a thunderstorm he would have a better understanding of it all. This led to several other experiments, some that worked better than others.
I wrote up the instructions for each one, along with what you need, what to do and space for the child (or you) to draw/write their observations. You could encourage the child to draw their own cover or find pictures from magazines to make one.
A good way to check a child’s understanding is to ask them to explain what happened to someone else, a older sibling or a friend or relative. I usually blog about what we have been up to over on my personal blog and Ebi-kun’s grandparents read it. Then the next time we have a video chat it gives them something to talk about, my mom has got ready good at asking the right kind of leading questions to get Ebi-kun talking about his latest project.
Here is the first experiment fro the free ebook, pop your name and address in the box below to get the rest of them.
