This one is going to take a few posts to cover because we did a bunch of activities and experiments, but I think I'll start with our main focus for week one - building our very own weather center! I had not originally planned to do this, but after persusing some of the weather activity books from the library, I realized it wouldn't be that difficult.
According to Kurt, it was pretty easy. I think it only took them an hour or so to complete.
Even though we wrapped up our weather study this week, we'll continue using our homemade weather center and recording observations in the journals. After three weeks, the children are still really getting into being weather forecasters, so we'll keep it up until their enthusiasm wanes. ;)
This was a fun family project and a great way to kick off our weather adventures. If you decide to give this a try or already have a homemade or store-bought weather station, I'd love to hear about your family's experiences with it.
