I'm sitting at an airport so small they board on the tarmac, when the dreaded announcement came across - 3 hour delay. So what's a girl to do but lesson plan?
After learning about the different types of clouds for 2 weeks, we made our own "Spilt Milk" pages. I know the cotton ball clouds project is a classic one, and I've used it over and over as a summative assessment. Along with the correct placement and labeling of each cloud type, the kids also wrote by each one,
"It looked like a _______________, but it was a ________ cloud." to mirror the book. Matching each cloud type with their own visual representation helped the kids keep the types and atmosphere level straight.
