    Here's a great way to teach about cloud identification and classification! Each child makes their own Nature-Watch Weather Window - a hand-held frame with a variety of cloud types classified by altitude. Then, head outside and match real clouds to the photos on the Weather Window. Identify the cloud type and discuss what type of weather might follow as a result. Our exclusive activity guide provides all of the information needed to teach about cloud identification - even if the instructor has no previous knowledge on this subject. Ages 4 and up. Everything you need is provided! Unit Goals and Concepts: Discover clouds and weather in an exciting way. Classify types of clouds and learn the weather they bring. Make a Weather Window that can be used to identify clouds and predict weather. Materials Included: All the materials you'll need to make your Weather Windows. Tacky glue. Our exclusive instructor's activity guide that makes planning the project easy and delivers loads of fun ideas for activities, games and relevant projects. Also includes a reproducible worksheet for your participants.

Cloud Finder Wheel--I have this in my nature kit for hikes. This site has a link to it.

Great visual for teaching clouds (weather). Make the clouds ahead of time and have the class label them after you learn about them!

I would introduce this before a lesson about clouds. I think it would be a great way to get students excited about what they are about to learn and provide them with a good way to remember facts about the clouds.

This activity would be a simple, yet engaging, way for students to share their own ideas about weather. Together, the whole class would brainstorm common weather terms and put them on display for the rest of the seasonal weather unit.
