We’re back with the next episode in our Science at Home video series. Today’s topic is air. Our discussion includes air experiments and activities involving learning about breathing, air currents, clouds, wind, air resistance, and more. The goal is to share simple ideas for doing science together.
Science at Home: Air
Watch the video to see our activities and discussion.
1) I talk about cloud watching and share an easy way to track the movement of clouds and air in the atmosphere.
3) Cerys from Rainy Day Mum shares a fun way to observe air currents with a paper spiral.
