Social Studies – 29/5/20

Windy weather.


Have you ever wondered where the wind comes from?     Take a look at this short video:

What are some good things about windy weather?

The wind dries your clothes for free!


You need to have some wind to be able to fly a kite!

A yacht needs wind to be able to sail on water.

A wind farm provides a clean, renewable source of energy.


What are some not so good things about wind?

It usually  makes you feel colder! Brrrrr!


It can cause damage to trees.

A high wind makes conditions very unpleasant.

Natural disasters like hurricanes can occur and have dangerous winds.

Here are some wind related crafts you  might like to try:

Start with a square piece of paper which can be decorated first.

Fold it in half diagonally, open out and fold over the other diagonal. Open out and you should have a creased “X” on the page.

Cut along the creases about halfway to the middle of the paper. Be sure not to cut all the way.

Bend each corner into the middle. Make sure to bend and not fold.

Once all 4 corners are in the middle, push the push pin/paper fastener through them all as well as the straw or eraser. Be careful not to hurt yourself with the pin!


You can also create your own wind by making a paper fan:

How to make a paper fan:


An anemometer is used by meteorologists to measure the speed of the wind.

Have fun!
