Have you noticed any changes in the clouds now that it is winter? Cloud shape and height can vary quite a lot between the warmer and cooler months of the year. One fun tool for viewing and identifying cloud types is a Cloud Window Frame. The frame is decorated with the many different types of clouds you can find, and there is a big empty space in the middle for you to look through and frame up the cloud you’re investigating so that you can compare it to the pictures on the sides. Follow this link from E is for EXPLORE, to find a sample cloud viewer to print and design your own frame. Or, use this sample as inspiration to draw your own! You can find lots of cloud pictures and descriptions on Scijinks.
Learn more about the different shapes, and how you can become a cloud scientist with naturalist Daryn, in the Cloud Video below.
