Are you a cloud watcher? When I was a child, I loved to watch clouds whenever we were traveling. I tried to find animals and mountains mostly.

A cloud is a very big collection of very tiny droplets of water or ice crystals. The droplets are so small and light that they can float in the air.

Learning about weather is just dreamy. Clouds are white because they reflect the light of the sun. Clouds reflect all the colors the exact same amount so they look white. Sometimes we see gray clouds. That happens when the clouds get thick enough or high enough so that all the light above does not make it through causing the cloud to look gray or dark.

Try making cloud pictures today with cotton balls pulled, stretched, and glued on blue construction paper. Draw fancy clouds with white chalk on blue construction paper.
