Teaching students to build handmade weather instruments and use them in home weather stations is a practical and effective way to educate a class about the basics of weather science while they examine their local environment. It is also a powerful way to expand a child's curiosity about the natural world into a greater appreciation and understanding of the world of science.
seven weather instruments in the Weather
Station Toolkit section of this book have
all been especially chosen
to be easy for students to make
There is also little, if any, cost involved. Each instrument
is made from inexpensive, everyday things that can be obtained
at home or school.
It's fun to become an amateur meteorologist!
