Preschool Rain/Clouds/Water Cycle
Craft ideas and maybe some snacks that have to do with rain and weather.
Three Art Mediums for Three Types of Clouds 1. Cirrus - white chalk 2. Stratus- thick gray paint 3. Cumulus- equal parts shaving cream and glue. It dries fluffy and textured- really fun! (for cumulonimbus- add a little black paint)
Great activity during a weather unit. 2 liter soda bottle cut in half. Put about an inch and a half of warm water (w blue food coloring) in the bottom. Invert the top of the bottle with the lid on and fill with ice. Watch the water condensate and watch it "rain"
Weather Unit - Video presentation of the 4 Main Types of Clouds - appears to be made by an older student, and unfortunately states that "there are four types of clouds," (omitting all the others!), but does a nice job of quickly describing and illustrating these clouds - set to "I'll Follow the Sun" . :-)
