I remember being a child and laying on the ground to watch the clouds pass. It was so peaceful and spurred my imagination into guessing what the big, fluffy, shapes might look like! It wasn't until I hit college that I learned about different types of clouds and what they signify! I didn't want my kids to wait THAT long to learn about clouds, so I created a brief unit study that will introduce students (around 5-8) to types of clouds and what they mean.
To start, you'll want to download the free printable Montessori Cloud Cards.
Ready for the next activity?
To round out the unit study, we spent some time crafting and baking! Look at this gem, an attempt at a cummulonimbus!
I bet you don't even need instructions for this project, but to check out the project and the recipe for cloud cake, head over to this page:
I hope you had fun, and learned something new along the way! Pass this along to your friends stuck in quarantine for a little easy, free, relief!
