Watching the wind

Today we brought our learning about the weather to a close. We made pinwheels that catch the wind and anemometers that can measure the speed of the wind. 

We have been looking at the Beaufort Scale which allows us to use what the wind is doing the trees to allow us to judge how fast the wind is blowing. Today was a force 5 cos it was making small trees bend.
We also had a think about how the wind can help us - wind powered electricity, dryng things out, blowing clouds away, sailing, flying kites..and had a competition between the wind and a hair dryer to dry some ponytails (thanks Katelyn and Ava!).
