Wacky Weather Science Experiments

Weather experiments that your students can swirl, twirl, and put their hands on to help students get excited about learning!

Teach kids to track a storm or learn about the power of the sun. Students gain tangible experience as they learn to calculate wind velocity or grow a snowflake. One project even lets them experience lightning in their mouth – a lesson that’s sure to create some excitement in the classroom!

These first-hand experiments help students learn more about the world around them, but best of all, they are tons of fun! Lessons are released every Thursday through May 20. Sign up now to get your students excited to learn about the weather!
