Learners investigate the concept of humidity by using a dry and wet sponge as a model. They determine a model for 100% humidity, a sponge saturated with water.
In this quick activity, learners observe how the added sugar in a can of soda affects its density and thus, its ability to float in water.
Learners build a simple aneroid barometer to learn about changes in barometric pressure and weather forecasting. They observe their barometer and record data over a period of days.
From the Weather Watchers featured theme on the CYBERCHASE website. Learners will conduct experiments to discover how air temperature and humidity work together to make condensation, dew, and fog.
Learners see convection currents in action in this highly visual demonstration. Sealed bags of colored hot or cold water are immersed in tanks of water.
In this activity, learners graph 48 hourly air temperatures from a local weather observation site and observe the diurnal temperature variations.
In this weather forecasting activity, learners use common materials to construct a rain gauge and measure daily, monthly, and yearly rainfall.
This activity (on page 2 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Forecasting) is a full inquiry investigation into meteorology and forecasting.
In this weather forecasting activity, learners determine the location of cold and warm fronts on weather plot maps.
In this activity, learners create a CloudSpotter wheel and record the different types of clouds they observe twice daily over several days.
In this weather-related activity, learners make a portable cloud in a bottle.
In this activity, learners create their own weather forecast map.
In this activity, learners create their own icons for a forecast-at-a-glance poster for their classroom/learning space.
Learners cover a bottle with a balloon. When they immerse the bottle in warm water, the balloon inflates. When they immerse the bottle in a bowl of ice, the balloon deflates.
In this meteorology activity, learners build weather vanes using straws, paperclips, and cardstock.
Learners develop an understanding of air pressure in two different activities.
In this meteorology activity, learners construct simple devices to measure the direction and speed of wind.
Learners color and cut out a spiral-shaped snake. When they hang their snake over a radiator, the snake spins.
