A saying where I live is, “If you don’t like the weather, just wait a moment…it’ll change!” Our weather – and the clouds we see – are never boring! That’s why I decided to have a little fun this summer with a mini-unit on clouds.

Learning About the Clouds
When we first moved to Oklahoma several years ago, my son was kind of amazed at the variety of clouds we have. Some days, we have a clear, blue sky. Other days, the skies are filled with the most amazing cloud formations!
When he was in elementary and middle school, this was one of his favorite subjects to learn about…probably because trying to predict the weather in Oklahoma is quite the challenge. We had so much fun learning about our ever-changing weather!
Because we had so much fun, I wanted to share some of our favorite activities. They’re included in these pages!
Clouds Notebook Page Set
And for a limited time, you can get my Clouds notebooking page set for free.
This set is designed to let your student explore, but also to not overwhelm. (It is summer, after all!) There are vocabulary activities, a “cloud key” to help kids better understand types and heights of clouds, and a fun writing activity.
This set will also pair wonderfully with some other units that will be coming out shortly! You also might like to check out my unit on artist John Constable – there’s a fun cloud art activity to go along with this study!
To round out your study, here are a few of my favorite resources!
