Practice meteorology and math by measuring the wind!

Using plastic bottles, wooden dowels, and other everyday items, students work together in small groups to build a DIY anemometer, a device used to measure wind speed. Once construction is complete, they calibrate their anemometer and understand the importance of establishing a control for scientific experiments. Then study wind speed by analyzing the rotations of the anemometer's spinning cup during a set period of time. Students learn to collaborate, think critically, and collect real-world data. Set includes everything needed for 12 small groups to construct their own anemometer. Full contents lest below. Recommended for upper Elementary and up.

The included lesson direction details setup instructions, activities by grade level, learning objectives, and teaching suggestions to expand lessons.
