Eight Weather Related Science Projects for Kids

This is dedicated to science projects for kids and the rest of the family to help with understanding weather and other aspects of meteorology. These are all weather experiments and projects that you can make freely on your own. I think they would be good for any school-age child. Meteorology is an excellent beginning for the budding scientist in your family!

If you are looking for fun, educational activities for you and your family, then this is the place for you.

This is meant to be a helpful resource for anyone including, but not limited to:

  • Classroom Education
  • Home Schooling
  • Summer Education
  • Scouting Groups
  • Community and Environmental education
  • Science Fair Projects
  • Parents

Each of these weather experiments should be done with a parent's approval and guidance.

Project #1: How to Make a Barometer

A barometer measures air pressure.

You will need the following:

  • A glass or beaker with straight (vertical) sides
  • A 12-inch ruler
  • Clear tape
  • One foot of clear plastic tubing (or a clear straw)
  • A stick of chewing gum
  • Water

Directions

  1. Begin by standing the ruler straight up in the glass and holding it against the side. Tape the ruler to the inside of the glass. Make sure that you can see the numbers on the ruler.
  2. Stand the plastic tube against the ruler in the glass. Make sure that the tube is not touching the bottom of the glass by positioning the tube up a half inch on the ruler. Secure the tube by taping it to the ruler.
  3. Chew the stick of gum so that it is soft.
  4. While you're chewing the gum, fill the glass with water—about halfway to the top of the glass. Use the plastic tube like a straw and draw the water halfway up the tube.
  5. Use your tongue to trap the water in the tube. Quickly stick the gum to the top of the tube to seal it.
  6. Make a mark on the ruler to record where the water level is in the tube. Each time you notice a change in the water level, make another mark. You'll notice, over time, that the water level rises and falls. Pay attention to the change in weather as the water level changes.

Does the Water Rise or Fall When It Is About to Rain?

The water in the tube rises and falls because of the air pressure on the water in the glass. As the air pressure increases (meaning more atmospheric pressure) on the water in the glass, water is pushed up into the tube, causing the water level to rise. When the air pressure decreases on the water in the glass, some of the water will move down out of the tube, causing the water level to fall.

The change in barometric pressure will help you to forecast the weather. Decreasing air pressure often indicates the approach of a low-pressure area, which often brings clouds and precipitation. Increasing air pressure often means that a high-pressure area is approaching, bringing with it clearing or fair weather.

Heres's what a real hygrometer looks like.

Heres's what a real hygrometer looks like.

Project #2: How to Make a Hygrometer

A hygrometer measures humidity (amount of moisture in the air).

You will need the following:

  • A piece of wood or flat, hard foam (about 10 inches long and 4 inches wide)
  • A flat piece of plastic (about 3 inches long and 3 inches wide), thin enough that you can cut
  • 2 small nails
  • 3 long strands of human hair (about eight inches long)
  • A dime
  • Glue
  • Tape
  • Hammer
  • Scissors (able to cut plastic)

Directions

  1. Cut the piece of plastic into a triangular shape. Then, tape the dime onto the plastic, near the point.
  2. Poke one of the nails through the plastic pointer, near the base of the triangle. Wiggle the nail until the pointer moves freely and loosely around the nail.
  3. On the plastic pointer, between the dime and the nail hole, glue the hair strands to the plastic.
  4. Position the pointer on the wood or foam base about three-quarters of the way down the side. Attach the nail to the base. The pointer must be able to turn easily around the nail.
  5. Attach the other nail to the base about one to two inches from the top of the base, in line with the pointer.
  6. Pull the hair strands straight and tight so that the pointer points parallel to the ground. Make sure the point of the pointer is perpendicular (like a T) to the hair. The hair should hang perfectly vertical and the pointer should point perfectly horizontal.
  7. Glue the ends of the hair to the nail. If the hair is too long, trim it down.

How Does This Project Work?

The cells in the human hair will indicate the level of moisture in the air by expanding and contracting.When the air is moist, the hair will expand and lengthen, making the pointer point down. When the air is dry, the hair will contract and shorten, making the pointer point up.

You can make your hygrometer observations each day. You should make a mark to indicate where the pointer points. After a while, you will be able to see the humidity patterns that will help you forecast the weather.

Project #3: How to Make an Anemometer

An anemometer measures wind speed. It's a device that tells you how fast the wind is blowing. A real anemometer will be able to accurately measure how fast the wind is blowing. However, yours will only give you an approximation of the wind speed.

You will need the following:

  • Five 3-5 ounce paper cups
  • Two straight plastic straws (any color)
  • One straight pin or push pin
  • One pencil with eraser (larger the eraser, the better)
  • Paper hole punch
  • A small stapler
  • A notepad (to record wind "speeds")
  • A marker (to write on a cup)
  • Scissors
  • Ruler

Directions

  1. Take four of the paper cups. Using the paper punch, punch one hole in each cup, about a half inch below the rim. Use the ruler if you need to measure it.
  2. With the fifth cup, punch a hole in the bottom center.
  3. Next, punch four equally spaced holes about a quarter inch below the rim. This will be referred to as the four-hole cup.
  4. Take one of the four cups and push a straw through the hole. Fold the end of the straw and staple it to the side of the cup across from the hole. Repeat this process for another one-hole cup and the second straw.
  5. Slide one cup and straw assembly through two opposite holes in the cup with four holes. Push another one-hole cup onto the end of the straw just pushed through the four-hole cup. Bend the straw and staple it to the one-hole cup, making certain that the cup faces in the opposite direction from the first cup.
  6. Repeat this procedure using the other cup and straw assembly and the remaining one-hole cup.
  7. Align the four cups so that their open ends face in the same direction (either clockwise or counterclockwise) around the center cup.
  8. Push the straight pin through the two straws where they intersect. Push the eraser end of the pencil through the bottom hole in the center cup. Push the pin into the end of the pencil eraser as far as it will go.

Your anemometer is ready!

How Do I Use My Anemometer?

Take the anemometer outside. It should rotate with the wind. It doesn't need to be pointed into the wind to spin.

Make a small, yet visible mark on one of the cups. By seeing the mark as the anemometer spins, you will be able to count the revolutions. Record the number of times the cup makes a complete revolution around the vertical-axis (pencil) in a minute. This number will be the revolutions per minute (RPM). Record your results on this data collection sheet.

Try this at different times in a day or on different days. Record the wind conditions such as: no wind, light winds, medium wings, heavy winds, or very heavy winds.

  • Do you notice a pattern?
  • Does the anemometer spin faster in the morning, afternoon, or evening?
  • Is it windier when there is a storm approaching?

How Does an Anemometer Work?

An anemometer is a device for measuring wind speed and is one instrument used in a weather station. The term is derived from the Greek word anemos, meaning wind.

The simplest type of anemometer is the cup anemometer, invented in 1846 by Dr. John Thomas Romney Robinson of Armagh Observatory. It consisted of four hemispherical cups each mounted on one end of four horizontal arms, which in turn were mounted at equal angles to each other on a vertical shaft. The air flow past the cups in any horizontal direction turned the cups in a manner that was proportional to the wind speed. Therefore, counting the turns of the cups over a set time period produced the average wind speed for a wide range of speeds. On an anemometer with four cups, it is easy to see that since the cups are arranged symmetrically on the end of the arms, the wind always has the hollow of one cup presented to it and is blowing on the back of the cup on the opposite end of the cross.

Project #4: How to Determine the Distance of Lightning

Note: You can only do this project during a thunderstorm.

You will need the following:

  • A watch (preferably a stopwatch) or the ability to count
  • A calculator or the ability to divide numbers

Instructions:

  1. After you see a flash of lightning, count the number of seconds until you hear the thunder. How many seconds did it take?
  2. For every 5 seconds counted, the lightning is one mile away.
  3. Divide the number of seconds you count by 5 to get the number of miles.

Examples:

  • Ten seconds would be two miles away
  • 18 seconds would be 3.6 miles away

Why Do You See the Lightning Before Hearing the Thunder?

Light (from the lightning) travels faster than sound (from the thunder).

What Causes Thunder?

Thunder is caused by lightning. When a lightning bolt travels from the cloud to the ground, it actually opens up a small "hole" through the air, called a channel. Once the lightning is gone, the air collapses back in and creates a sound wave that we hear as thunder.

See where lightning is happening right now in the US!

Project #5: Make Your Own Lightning

You will need the following:

  • A small piece of wool fabric
  • An aluminum pie pan
  • Styrofoam plate
  • A pencil with a new eraser
  • 1 thumbtack

Instructions

  1. Turn the aluminum pie pan upside-down and push the thumbtack through the center.
  2. Push the eraser end of the pencil into the thumbtack. The pencil should be standing straight up.
  3. Put the styrofoam plate upside-down on a table. Very quickly, rub the bottom of the styrofoam plate with the wool for a minute or two.
  4. Pick up the aluminum pie pan using the pencil as a handle and place it on top of the upside-down styrofoam plate that you were just rubbing with the wool.
  5. Touch the aluminum pie pan with your finger. You should feel a shock. If you don't feel anything, try rubbing the styrofoam plate again with the wool.
  6. Once you feel the shock, try turning the lights out before you touch the pan again.

What Did You See?

The answer is static electricity, which refers to "the accumulation of excess electric charge in a region with poor electrical conductivity (an insulator), such that the charge accumulation persists."

Lightning happens when the negative charges, which are called electrons, in the bottom of the cloud (or in this experiment, your finger) are attracted to the positive charges, which are called protons, in the ground or in this experiment, the aluminum pie pan. The spark that you had seen is like a miniature lightning bolt!

Project #6: Tornado in a Jar

The purpose of this experiment is to observe how a vortex forms.

You will need the following:

  • A mayonnaise type of jar (with a lid for less mess)
  • Water
  • Clear liquid dish soap
  • Vinegar
  • A pinch of glitter (optional)

Instructions

  1. Fill the jar 3/4 full of water.
  2. Put in one teaspoon of vinegar and one teaspoon of dish soap.
  3. Sprinkle with a small amount of glitter. **You can also use food coloring.
  4. Close the lid and twist the jar to see a vortex like a tornado form. You can also use a spoon or swizzle stick to create the vortex (without the lid on, of course!).

Explanation: As you twist the jar, the fluid toward the inside takes longer to get moving. After you stop rotating the jar, the fluid inside keeps spinning. A mini tornado can be seen for a few seconds when the outer fluid slows down and the inner fluids continue to spin rapidly.

Project #7: Making a Cloud in a Glass

You will need the following:

  • A clear glass or similar see-through container
  • Warm water
  • Ice
  • Metal dish (or another flat object that transfers the cold well)

Instructions

  1. Place the ice into the metal dish. Wait for it to be really cold.
  2. Pour a small amount of warm water into the bottom of the glass.
  3. Place the cold plate on top of the glass.

Do you see a "cloud" forming? You should see one form near the top of the glass.

Explanation

This is the way clouds form in the real world. Warm, moist air, like that in your glass, is cooled (cold plate). When the warm, moist air is cooled, it condenses into tiny water droplets, which appear as clouds.

Project #8: How to Make a Rainbow

You will need the following:

  • A clear glass jar with a wide mouth
  • Water
  • A mirror (small enough to fit in the glass)
  • A Flashlight
  • A room with white walls

Instructions

  1. Fill the glass with water. Then, carefully place the small mirror into the glass jar, at an angle.
  2. Turn the lights off so that you will able to see the rainbow better.
  3. Aim the flashlight toward the mirror in the jar. Change the angle of light from the flashlight or change the angle of the mirror until you can see the rainbow on the wall or ceiling.

What colors do you see?

Explanation

The mirror reflects light as it passes through the water, traveling at an angle. The water refracts (or bends) the light. As light bends, it separates into the colors of the rainbow, which are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet.

I've taken up kite flying (not during the winter) and love to watch the sky. The lighting moving picture is beautiful. There's nothing like a storm like that and the freshness of the air during and after. No, I don't fly kites in a lightening storm.

When my grandchildren get older they will find out about some of the science experiments from this lens. I'm sure it will fun and make some big eyes even bigger.

julieannbrady on January 12, 2010:

You know, I sure have tried multiple times to put THAT fire under my hubby's butt to get busy and write science-topic lenses. He would love this lens. I'll grab him by the collar and let him sit down and check this one out -- he was a high school science teacher -- and the two lenses we have co-authored both earned purple stars.
