Rain, snow and sunshine, our weather is wonderful! But what causes planet Earth to have such a variety of weather conditions? In this workshop, your pupils will discover how the sun’s energy creates our weather. Using fun visual demonstrations, the formation of wind is shown, while the water cycle is investigated using a combination of dance and a smartboard activity. Taking a look at extreme weather, pupils will work in teams to make a tornado. The workshops finishes with a demonstration of how lightning is formed!
