Olivia Making a Weather Vane

This was one of the science lessons Olivia did this week. She's been learning about weather; and today's focus was the wind. She made a weather vane and tested it out on the mudroom roof.

At first, there was no wind so the vane didn't move. Then, there was a gust of wind and the weather vane began to move. "The wind is coming from the northwest!" she said. Indeed it was.

This was simple hands-on activity that brought learning about the weather to life.
