Exploring Rain Clouds
Alden Fletcher, Atelierista
This stormy wintery month is a wonderful opportunity to explore the changing weather. In pre-k, we have been dialoguing about rain and where it comes from. The children have many theories, which I asked them to portray in a graphic form. These quotes and images convey the varied thinking of the children, as well as their ability to use the language of drawing to articulate their ideas.
“The world spins around and when it faces the moon on one side, some of the moon’s air comes to the earth and bumps in and goes to different parts of the world” -Ali (age 5) describing where clouds come from
