Weather for Kids can be truly fascinating and at the same time can be confusing too. The diverse aspects of weather make it hard for the younger kids to understand the principle behind it. In order to make it easy for the kids to learn and know about the amazing world of weather several weather experiments have been formulated. These experiments are the perfect means for the kids to understand the fundamentals behind weather and their properties.
Weather Related Science Experiments :
Weather for Kids can be truly easy to understand by demonstrating certain weather experiments. Kids can later try these experiments
at home. Some of the most popular weather experiments for kids are explained below:
Fog in a Jar- All you will need is a black paper, matches, gallon jar, colored warm water and a gallon size bag of ice. Cover the back of jar with black paper with the help of a tape so that you will not be able to see through this jar. Now take some colored warm water and fill it in the jar. Light a match stick and hold it for a while over the opening of the jar. Drop the match stick in the jar and immediately cover the opening of jar with bag of ice. Soon you will see little cloud forming in the jar.
Conduction Experiment- All you will need is a paper cup, tongs, water and candle with a stand. First of all take the paper cup and fill 2/3rd of it by water. Now light the candle and with the help of the tong hold the paper cup about two inches above the flame. Hold it in this position till the water in the cup gets hot. You will see that the paper cup does not catch fire. In this experiment the conduction of heat takes place from paper to water as a result of which the paper cup does not burn.
After successfully conducting these experiments the Weather for Kids will not be so much difficult for them to understand.
