Product Description

Is it drafty in here?

Wind is caused by uneven heating of the Earth's surface. Warm air rises and cool airs sinks. Updrafts are caused by warm air rising.  Downdrafts are created by cool air sinking. When updrafts meet downdrafts, air begins to move and wind is created. 

In the "Whirly Air Mobile" activity students will:

  • Learn about how wind and drafts are formed
  • Discover how wind and drafts can be found
  • Create pinwheels and mobiles to observe air movement
  • Observe air movement in different areas
  • Record their observations of wind and drafts

Each student will receive materials to make their own pinwheel to observe the wind.  In addition, the students each make their own mobile to observe updrafts.  The students use the pinwheel and mobile to record observations about air movement on their student worksheets. They will identify how wind and drafts are natural phenomena and can be useful to both animals and humans.

The teacher materials include a larger wind mobile to help the students understand the concepts about air movement.  The Teacher's Guide provides instructions, discussion topics and background information for the lesson.

Each Classroom Kit comes with a Teacher's Guide, Student Worksheets and a 25 sets of lab materials for each activity. The Teacher's guides are written in such a way that any instructor, if the lesson plans are followed, is able to teach every lesson on a professional level. 25 copies of the student lesson plans are conveniently provided for each student activity. The kits are designed so that an educator opens the box and can begin teaching.

The Classroom Kits are packaged so that each student receives their own materials to perform the activity's investigation. The lab materials are separated, for each student, to minimize preparation time in the classroom. All kits include the necessary materials to perform the activity. No outside materials (with the exception of water in some activities) are required. The kits even include common classroom materials if the activity requires them such as crayons, pencils, or tape.

The Homeschool Kits contain a teacher manual, student activity worksheets, and lab activities packaged for one student.
