Today we took our weather library books outside with us. Some students spent their first few minutes lying on the ground and gazing up at the sky looking for shapes. Others were excited to begin matching the clouds they observed to the clouds in the books.
There was some great discussion between the students when it came to labelling the clouds correctly. ”It was there, I promise it was there a moment ago. Where did the cloud go?! I think it moved and changed shapes again.”
The following day, I took some of the Grade One’s aside and we began to review the pictures and quotes that we had collected. Together, we co-wrote a documentation panel on our observations and questions about clouds.
