“Mom, What type of clouds are those?” This simple question is the motivation behind making these fun cloud worksheets. At first, I told my son that we could look up the answer on the computer. I did find a write up about clouds so I tried to explain them to him. He loved learning about the four types of clouds but I thought a fun worksheet would be the best thing to help explain them better. So I put him down for his nap and told him I would have something fun for him when he woke up.
Since my son is three, I decided to incorporate some of the things he has been learning. For example, writing his name and tracing the letters. He really loved working on these. It was a fun change from his workbooks and since he has a brain for science, it was right up his ally. He was so proud of his worksheets that they were taken to Grandma and Grandpa’s house to hang on the fridge.
When worked on worksheets, was discussed each type of cloud. Then we decided how to glue to cotton balls onto the paper to make it look like the photo. Once that was done, he traced the letters and I read what he traced. I know some of the information has stayed with him. He recently went into our sun room and said it wasn’t going to rain because there were no nimbus clouds.
Here is how his worksheets turned out:
To give the Nimbus Clouds their dark color, we rubbed black crayon on them. The Cirrus Clouds we pulled apart the cotton balls to make them wispy. For the Stratus Clouds we unrolled the cotton balls and made them into sections.
