How can I 'catch' the breeze?

By Emma Gavin

The Basic Idea

Give children lengths of ribbon or streamers to take outside on a windy day. Let children explore the effects of the wind.

How to take it even further or make it more challenging

Use the poem Wind by Andrew Collett as a starting point. Children explore the wind using the ribbons/streamers and then write their own verse of the poem.

Also you can discuss the force of wind and how this can be both destructive and useful through wind power to create energy.
