Kinder Anemometers

Kindergarteners in Mrs. Castro's class have been exploring the weather in the month of February. To help them understand how scientists study weather patterns, they had a guest speaker, Mr. Carbajal, come to their class to talk to them about a various weather measurement tools. After students listened, discussed, peer shared, and studied weather tools with the support of Mr. Carbajal, they ideated an anemometer to see how it worked.

Working with Mr. Carbajal and Mrs. Castro, they each built a prototype of an anemometer. Students took it home to test it and shared their feedback on Monday about the function and experience with the anemometer.
