This is a simple activity that allows students to see that wind is a force. They begin to understand that wind can push and pull, and they can experience first hand how increasing the strength of the force increases the resulting motion.
In this product you will receive:
- a list of materials
- step by step instructions for how to make the pinwheels
- real photos accompanying the instructions to provide clarity
- printable pinwheel template
- science writing paper for student reflections after the activity
