Product Description

It is so nice to just turn on the TV or glance at the phone to get a weather report. But people have been measuring the weather long before weather reporters and high tech measurement gadgets.

So how did they do that? Well we can do it ourselves by building a weather station.

In this lesson we will build a simple

•Barometer

•Anemometer

•Weather vane

•Rain gauge

We used a lot of recycled materials for this project so it is very cheap to build and easy. This is the perfect way to get kids hands-on with recording weather conditions and seeing what goes into their daily weather report.

This is also a good opportunity to discuss building your own scientific instruments to make science easy for everyone.
