What can you feel, but not see? The answer is the wind! The wind blows against our skin so we can feel it even though we cannot see it. Because we can feel the wind and see it blow things around, we know it exists. Wind is simply air in motion.
Wind is important for many reasons. One way the wind helps us is by blowing flower seeds around so more flowers can take root and grow in another place. Long ago, we used windmills to help power things, today, we still use windmills or wind turbines, but they help to generate electricity. The wind blows puffy clouds across the sky and causes fun windsocks and wind chimes dance and sing
