Spring is right around the corner, and for a lot of the nation, that means more time spent outdoors! Our favorite past time is going outside with a blanket, and laying in the grass and watching the clouds move by. Watching clouds is a fun family activity that an also be turned into a great science unit study topic.
I have put together a nice list of free worksheets, printables and science project ideas that you can use to create your own unit study on clouds. We have also been busy creating lots of high quality weather printables thhat will go along beautifully with any study on the different types of weather.
