In temperate climates, winter brings rain, sleet, freezing rain, hail, and snow. How is water changed into so many different forms of precipitation?
Why can it rain, freezing rain, sleet, hail, or snow all in one day? What causes precipitation to change within minutes? Have students find out the answers and then create a chart to show the information. Here are some ideas for starters:
Cover art area with newspaper. Using Crayola® Watercolors and a Watercolor Brush, paint a large sky-blue area. To show warmer air, leave part of the space white.
On another sheet of paper, use Crayola Fine Line Markers to write the titles and explanations needed for the chart. Sections might be Warmer Air, Colder Air, Rain, Sleet, Freezing Rain, Hail, and Snow. Cut these out with Crayola Scissors. Attach them to the poster with Crayola Glue Sticks.
On another sheet of paper, use Crayola Colored Pencils to draw and color raindrops, snowflakes, and dots to signify freezing rain or sleet. Cut them out and glue them to the chart.
Students present their findings to the class at school and at home to their families.
