Can the Wind Move It

This is a science experiment with wind where children blow on objects to simulate the wind.

What will the wind blow recording chart.  Put objects in front of a fan and see if they move in the wind.  Chart has a space for both a prediction and result.

Gather a variety of common classroom objects that may or may not blow away on a windy day. Place the objects on your floor along with a chart labeled as shown. Have youngsters predict which items will or will not take flight in the wind by placing them on the chart. Then take the objects outside on a windy day and place them on a flat surface. Have students observe the objects to determine whether their predictions were correct.

Cookie Erosion- this is an alternative to our "fake rain" experiment. It might actually teach weathering and erosion better. On Tuesday we could do the 1 minute tests, and Wednesday do the 5 minute tests. This would have more information for the math graphs lessons too!
