Breezy Windsock

Students discuss the wind-- what causes it, how it is used, and how it affects the weather. They list ways they know that air is moving, such as feeling it on their skin or watching a flag blow in the breeze. Students research the Japanese origins of the windsock, its uses in aviation, and understand that it is designed to catch the wind.
