Classroom Ideas

This clip can help exploring wind as a force of nature. Show the clip and then ask the children if they can think of other sports which rely on wind, eg sailing, windsurfing or kite flying. How do we control the force? Maybe carry out an experiment with the children. Bring in a big bowl of water and a few small sailing boats. Ask the children to simulate wind by blowing into the sails controlling the speed and direction of the boats.
