The weather is warming up and right now is the PERFECT time to do some cloud watching! This week my preschool and MD hall friends are reading Little Cloud by Eric Carle. This is a story about a little cloud that with a touch of imagination, becomes many different things like an airplane, a rabbit, and even a clown. This little cloud is able to stretch, drift, and even merge with other clouds to make something extraordinary.
I decided to pair this title with some science fun so this week, after we read our story, we are watching a short video from PBS about clouds and weather. The kids are learning just a little bit about the different types of clouds.
To finish up the lesson, we are using cotton balls to create our own cumulus, stratus, and cirrus clouds.
