FUN FRIDAY: Clouds of cotton

I know so many tactile learners who would love this lesson from Krazy About Kiddos. Students in this first grade classroom get to stretch out and squeeze cotton balls to make the shapes and textures of the different types of clouds. How memorable and how fun! This would also make a great bulletin board.

If you have students who cannot pull or stretch the materials on their own, you could have peer partners pull and stretch with or for them before having them match the different types of clouds with their correct names. Glue could also be used to “draw” types of clouds if this is easier for some.
