A wheel which dares you to reinvent it

This is not an easy activity to center a Story Time program or a Makerspace program on, simply because it is *so* straightforward and *so* easy to execute. It takes about two minutes for a school-aged kid to assemble, and while the weather terms and definitions it contains may be slightly more advanced, but it’s really difficult to turn the Cloud Teller itself into a centerpiece for a lesson. It fits much more neatly at the end of a program, I think. That’s how we ended up utilizing ours—we ran a Story Time program on weather, featuring a bunch of related books and a flannel board activity, plus a coloring craft. Most of our Story Time kiddos were uninterested in the Cloud Teller, while the older kids—those of an age to get into origami in a serious way—were fascinated. I’d love to hear from other reviewers as to whether they noticed a similar age gap in terms of interest. I have the feeling the links and further resources provided at the top of the Cloud Teller sheet will be of more interested to older kids with access to computers and tablets, or to their parents.

This craft is far and away more popular when the pages are printed in color!

Fun and simple handout

This was a nice takeout to handout after the end of a program all about weather. Participants really liked them and were excited to make them. Educational and fun makes for a winning combination.

Super-easy passive program

I put these out alongside the cloud-watching activity as a pair of related passive activities for a week in winter break. I printed them in black and white for ease and cost considerations, then left colored pencils out for kids to decorate them. I folded and colored an example to draw attention. I may splurge and print a few in color just to see if that affects their appeal as I suspect it may.
