Children have many questions in their brains. Children also like to imagine. They must often ask about where the rain comes from. How do tornadoes happen? Or why can snowfall?
Well, all of these things can be taught to children through weather experiments. In this way, they can understand the process of weather formation directly. By practicing, children can understand this more easily.
This method can help children learn science in a fun way. They can also want to learn more when they feel pleasure in learning science. Well, you can spend the Easter holidays doing these experiments with the kids. So, here are Easter weather experiments to captivate students' attention.
Children can learn the water cycle by using plastic bags. The water cycle is a water flow in nature. So, this cycle explains how rainwater can fall to the earth and become groundwater.
The way to make the water cycle experiment is to provide a plastic bag that can be closed. Also, provide water and blue food coloring. Then, draw the plastic office with clouds, sun, and water lines. After that, pour the water mixed with blue food coloring into the plastic bag.
Next, close the plastic bag and place it on a window. The water in the plastic bag will evaporate in the sun. The water will turn into dew. Then, the dew will condense and fall again to the bottom of the plastic bag. That process of rain can be explained to the children.
Easter is celebrated in spring. Occasionally, there are tornadoes in spring. Well, you can explain this phenomenon using this Easter weather experiment.
Prepare several materials such as two 2-liter bottles, water, duct tape, and dish soap. Then, fill one bottle with ¾ of water. After that, add dish soap to the water.
Then, place an empty bottle on top of the one filled with water. You have to tape the two bottles so there are no water spills. So, you can use duct tape to glue the two bottles.
In that way, the children can see the tornado in the bottle. When the bottle is rotated and turned upside down, a whirlpool is formed. It is the whirlpool that forms the tornado.
Then, you can explain to the children that tornadoes are caused by thunderstorms. Tornadoes can occur because of warm moist air and cool dry air. In addition, an increase in wind speed makes the tornado bigger.
Not only do Easter weather experiments, but you can also tell children about the meaning of Easter. It will make children understand the true meaning of Easter. Some of these things are important meanings of Easter.
