The children have been learning about how to record the weather. We took the lesson outside to do a few experiments to tell the weather. The children learnt that the weather can be recorded in different ways, taking the temperature, collecting rainfall, and telling wind direction and air pressure. To record these observations, we had to set up some equipment outside. The children made an apparatus to catch rainfall, read the temperature on a thermometer outdoors, and made a weather vane to see how the arrow spins in the wind—we used a compass to see in which direction the wind was blowing. We made a barometer to read the air pressure.
