This project ran from Monday 23rd of May until Sunday 29th of May.
The project was prompted by a weather workshop at the local country park, and it was our second weather project for Solomon as we had explored the topic in his first year of home education (see Project 45: The Weather). At the workshop the children made a kite, an anemometer, and an octogrid for looking at cloud cover.
They also made another anemometer at home, using the instructions from the Weather Watcher book, although it didn't work very well.
Using a number of books from the library, as well as online resources, we explored types of weather, where weather comes from, and the different layers of the atmosphere, as well as climate change and greenhouse gases.
Next project: The Queen and the Royal Family
