In this environmental science activity (page 3 of the PDF), leaners will identify and explain the causes of erosion.
Discover the wind's direction using bubbles, a map and a keen eye. Learners blow bubbles and note their general direction on a map, taking readings from different points around a building.
In this activity, learners investigate how wind can create surface currents and how waves move. Learners also discover how wind can affect oil spills.
In this activity, learners investigate and compare the rate of drying in different conditions.
In this activity, learners discover how the extent of various wind speeds changes in each of the four quadrants around a hurricane.
In this activity, learners explore how various energy sources can be used to cause a turbine to rotate.
In this online Flash game, learners will captain a sailing challenge, adjusting boat direction and sails, seeking the way to take greatest advantage of varying wind speeds and directions to catch the
Make a kite out of a garbage bag, shower curtain, painting tarp--anything light, thin, flexible and plastic!
In this engineering activity, learners build a device (an anemometer) to measure how fast the wind is blowing.
In this activity, learners make a barometer, an instrument to measure change in air pressure.
In this oceanography and data collection activity, learners cast real time sea state conditions using buoys from NOAA's National Data Buoy Center.
In this indoor and/or outdoor activity, learners make an anemometer (an instrument to measure wind speed) out of a protractor, a ping pong ball and a length of thread or fishing line.
Learn about friction and kinetic energy with this cool spinning toy.
In this activity, learners explore watercraft engineering and sailing.
In this activity, learners make their own "tornado" using two soda bottles and water.
This activity (on page 2 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Kites) is a full inquiry investigation into how a kite’s shape affects its performance.
In this activity, learners create and understand surface currents. Learners create example surface currents and discover how landmasses affect the current.
In this quick activity, learners use a toaster to investigate the source for the Earth's wind. Learners hold a pinwheel above a toaster to discover that rising heat causes wind.
In this activity, learners test how cornstarch and glitter in water move when disturbed. Learners compare their observations with videos of Jupiter's and Earth's storm movements.
