Learning about the wind on a windy day

Looks like the weather knows exactly what we need :-)

Yesterday we read about the wind in our science books

DK Eye Wonder Weather and
The Usborne Book of Science Activities Volume III
 and we made the "instruments" needed to measure the strength and the direction of  the wind:


We couldn't try our "instruments" outside in the wind, because simply there was no wind, not a tiniest breeze.
Today, on the other hand, we woke up to a beautiful cloudless sky and some pretty strong winds!
Yeah! It was time to try out what we've made! Take a look at what was happening to our "instruments":

  1. Glad you got to try them out and didn't have to wait a long time. Today was really windy.
