Creating your own rainstorm...this is so cool! All you need is a clear container, water, shaving cream, food coloring and droppers. Have kids make predictions by drawing what they see and think will happen.

Make it RAIN! Hot water in the jar, cold front "clouds" on top...it rains in the jar. Totally awesome. - Matter Lesson

Wish teachers could teach using lessons like this instead of teaching to pass a state mandated test!!!!!!!!!!!! Weather: Fill the cup with water. Put shaving cream on top for a cloud. Explain that when clouds get really heavy with water, it rains! Then put blue food coloring on top of the cloud, and watch it rain. Kids love experiments!

Recycling plastic caps into a classroom project- in this case, creating beautiful strings of 'raindrops' out of caps that normally end up in the trash. Make this to create excitement for your weather study.

Science fair experiments.. Because you never know when your kid will need an idea

This activity can be a way to review my students over the water cycle. Once each of the stages are taught, they can create a poster of the cycle. I will have the front table with materials for the students to use to create their picture. For the clouds I can have cotton balls or marshmallows. I can also have varies colors of construction paper and tissue paper for the students to pick between.

It's alive! One of the coolest science experiments ever!- cornstarch and water mixture moves to sound so kids can visually experience sound waves.

Raining rainbows - food coloring on floating shaving foam. I think we have everything in the house already, even a glass container! What are the odds??!!
