When the Wind Blows Lesson Plan
Learners read a book and observe the wind and how it affects the environment. They explore what wind does by looking at pictures, reading a book, and by completing an experiment. They will use their own knowledge of the wind and compare it with the new information they obtain.

Wind Erosion And How We Can Prevent It
Fourth graders investigate wind erosion and how to prevent unwanted erosion. They define key vocabulary terms, create an interactive diorama that demonstrates how wind causes erosion and deposition of sand and soil, and watch a video.

Science - 'Why does the wind blow?'
In this earth science worksheet, learners read a poem about the wind and learn why the wind blows. After reading the poem and informative paragraphs that follow it, students answer 2 questions regarding the information they read. Finally, learners write their own poem about the wind.

Measuring the Wind in the School Yard
In this wind worksheet, students construct a wind speed and direction indicator. They calibrate it using a Beaufort wind scale and take at least five observations/measurements in the school yard. They answer questions about their results.

See The Wind!
Students learn about wind at different altitudes above the earth. In this wind lesson plan, students use kites or balloons with attached streamers to observe the wind speed, wind turbulence and shear at different elevations. Students complete an observations/data sheet and answer 7 questions about their results.

Wind Tunnel Testing
One of the factors that automotive engineers must consider is wind drag. The less wind drag, the more efficient the car will be. They perform many tests in wind tunnels, then refine their designs and test again. Using simple materials, transform your middle and high schoolers into designers and engineers as they work together to create their own low-drag cars, then test them in a class wind tunnel.

Winter Weather Day 3: Signs of the Wind
Students investigate winter weather, specifically wind. In this weather lesson, students use bubbles, balloons, streamers and pinwheels to examine wind. They develop wind vocabulary with words such as breezy, windy, blustery, gusty, and stormy.

Wind and Currents
Students observe how wind generates currents and the effect of islands and banks on currents. They determine ocean circulation affects climate and plant and animal populations on land and in the ocean and that surface currents are created by the prevailing wind system

Science Is A Breeze: Using Wind Tunnels
Learners test various objects in a wind tunnel. They first build a wind tunnel and then they test polyhedrons in it and then toy cars. This instructional activity should build on design concepts students learned at the previous grade level.

Science is a Breeze: Using Wind Tunnels
Students consider wind tunnels and their importance in the development of flight. Through computer animation, they examine and observe the parts of a wind tunnel. Students evaluate the concept of lift and drag. They build a wind tunnel and test polyhedrons in it.

Weathervanes in the Wind
Students investigate wind and weather by creating a weathervane. In this environment lesson, students identify the purpose of a weathervane and observe weathervanes in action on their campus. Students create a weathervane and decorate it in a way they choose.

The Work of Waves and Wind
This is not revolutionary, but it is informative. Earth science viewers in grades 7-12 get carried away with wave and wind erosion. They view diagrams of how waves impact ocean shorelines. They see examples of the different types of sand dunes and how they are formed.
