Students investigate the different forms of water by turning fog into drinkable water. In this harvesting lesson, students discuss and observe photographs of fog and why it is essential for some countries to collect water from fog using simple tools. Students utilize pantie hose, a coat hanger, can and humidifier to create a fog net and use it in class.
Create a fog chamber in a jar in order to explore the process of fog or cloud formation. A materials list and assembly instructions are explained, as well as a section about what to notice during the exploration. The laboratory sheet is not written in standard scientific method format. Another unfortunate error is that the vapor is refered to as "smoke" several times. Perhaps you can use this resource for your own reference, but create a separate handout for your class.
Learners analyze the water issues of Cape Verde in the Peace Corp lesson plan. In this water resources lesson plan, students analyze the concept of water being harvested from fog.

This activity asks learners to interpret data displayed on a graph within the context of the problem. Students are given three graphs that show solar radiation, or intensity of the sun, as a function of time. They are also given three statements describing the status of the weather during the day. The task is to match each graph with the corresponding weather description.
Students use satellite data to explore sea surface temperature. They explore the relationship between the rotation of the Earth, the path of ocean current and air pressure centers. After studying maps of sea surface temperature and ocean surface winds, students discuss and map, the cold and warm currents. From the information they collect, they determine the best place to fish, and where fog may be found.
Students explore the weather system by analyzing water properties. For this precipitation lesson, students review weather related vocabulary terms and discuss how rainbows are created by light hitting droplets at the right time. Students conduct a rainbow experiment by utilizing an electric kettle, cotton balls, mirrors and other household objects.
Weather and the days of the week are the focus on a fun kindergarten activity. Using a word bank with weather words, kids match the pictures of snow, wind, rain, and sun to their correct terms. They then draw a picture for the weather Monday through Friday, based on instructions.
