Cloud Flashcards

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff

Have your students make their own set of flashcards to study the clouds by using index cards and cotton balls. On one side, they can glue the cotton balls on in a way that describes that cloud by sight. On the other side, they can write their answer of what type of cloud it is called. They can also describe what the weather will be like on that kind of day that the cloud forms. For example, "stratus" clouds are gray and are the lowest in the sky. So your students my spread out the cotton ball and color over top of it with a gray crayon or marker. It should also be positioned on the lower half of the index card. On the backside of the card it would say its name plus that it means there might be a light rain. Do the same for "nimbostratus", "cirrus", and "cumulus" clouds. These will make excellent flashcards for your students to quiz each other in pairs.
