I have always just loved the clouds. I remember learning about the different cloud formations in school as a kid and being so fascinated by it. I always remembered the names and would point them out to my family. I also love watching the clouds move and change. For a while now, I have been wanting to do a cloud formation log with my kids to watch and track the clouds. I finally got around to creating it and we are starting today!
I created a graphic to use to teach about the different types of clouds so the kids can use that a a guide when looking in the sky. The log is divided into morning and afternoon and has room to write the name of the clouds as well as sketch what they see.
Since i just made it and will begin using it this week, I will have to come back with an update, but my kids were really excited about it when I showed them. They can’t wait to get started! I think I will just incorporate it into our regular nature study time each day.
