Let your student's discover clouds in a fun and exciting way by making a cloud window! They can learn all about cloud identification and classification with this hand-held frame. Have students cut out the cloud window (pick the one that is level-appropriate for your specific class) and glue it onto a popsicle stock or tongue depressor. If you provide your students with cotton balls and glue, you can also have them make models of the clouds and attach them to their cloud windows. This creates a 3-D cloud window visual! When they are done, go outside, look through the center window, and match real clouds to the pictures. Have your student's identify the cloud type and discuss what type of weather might follow as a result. I have provided a recording sheet as well as a variety of versions of the cloud window to choose from (basic/advanced and authentic cloud pictures in black and white/color). You do not need to print them all-just pick out the one that best suits your specific classroom needs. I have also provided two different blank cloud windows in case you would rather have your students fill in their own information and/or modify the cloud information I have provided. Enjoy!
