• All About Wind •

Air is everywhere—but how do we know it exists if we can’t see it? Air is most noticeable when we feel it in the form of wind. Wind can be a light breeze that blows our hair on a spring day or a strong gust that knocks down trees during a powerful storm. We can also see air when it fills up space inside a bubble or a balloon. We will experiment with air and explore the ways that an invisible substance can produce powerful effects.

We will:
· Explore the science of wind through hands-on activities and children’s books
· Have fun while learning to think like scientists!
