Elementary School Teachers: Have You Checked Out the "Cloud” Teaching Box?
A new University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) Center for Science Education (SciEd) “Cloud” Teaching Box (for elementary school students) is now available!
UCAR teaching boxes are collections of classroom-ready and standards-aligned activities, content, and multimedia that build student understanding of science, technology, engineering, and math. All materials are freely available online.
Clouds are both universal and mysterious. The science of clouds helps students feel closer to the sky and in awe of nature as they learn elementary concepts of physics, the water cycle, and atmospheric science. Students can also become citizen scientists and make cloud observations with the GLOBE Observer app. Explore educational resources in the Cloud Teaching Box and bring cloud science to your elementary students!
