Help that student read the lunch menu. 5. Obtain a count of how many students are eating hot/cold lunches and have the student helper take the count to the administrative assistant. 6. Next, determine who the student helper for the weather report is for the day. 7. Help that student read the daily weather guide. If there isn t one in the room, discuss what the weather is going to be like for the day. Rainy, cloudy, windy, sunny, etc. 8. You will want to relate today s weather to the wind. (Rainy weather- wind comes with rain; Sunny weather- slight breezes; Cloudy weather- watch the breeze on the leaves, flag, grass, etc. Have fun coming up with examples) 9. Keep the students in the common area of the room for the next activity. 5

6 SECTION THREE BRAINSTORM/VOCABULARY ACT OUT (10 min.) Student Objective At the conclusion of this activity the students will have the experience of working together to act out and make a list of vocabulary words that are associated with wind movement. 1. Found in the box provided by Volunteer Council a. Wind movement vocabulary words flash card set b. I See The Wind poem 2. Found in the classroom a. Chalk or dry erase marker b. Chalkboard or white board 1. Read, I See The Wind poem to transition into the brainstorming activity. 2.

Have that student act out their word movement to the class. 4. Place a list of the words on the chalk board or dry erase board as each student comes up with their word. 5. If the students need help getting started, use the Wind Movement Vocabulary Words Flash Card Set for help. 6. Describe what the words mean to help the students act out the words, in case some students need more encouragement. 7. Have the students go back to their desks for the next activity. 6

7 SECTION FOUR STRAW GAME (15 min.) Student Objective At the conclusion of this activity the students will have the experience of collecting and recording their findings of the game and will be able to better predict what wind can or cannot easily move. 1. Found in the box provided by Volunteer Council a. Straws (not hole punched), one for each student plus some extras b. Cotton balls, one for each student plus some extras c. Toothpicks, one for each student plus some extras d. Straw Game Chart, one for each student plus some extras 2. Found in the classroom a. Pencil to record findings Preparation: Review how the game is played prior to the day of the program. 1. Gather the straws, cotton balls, toothpicks, game charts and pencils needed for the game. 2. Have one volunteer read the Straw Game Chart with the kids prior to distributing the game so that all the kids are looking at and understand the game chart, then distribute the game chart to the students. 3. Next, distribute the cotton balls, tooth picks and straws to the students. In the Free Choice space, have the student choose one item off of their desk that they would like to see if it will move with their wind. (Glue, marker, pencil, scissors, etc.) Have them place their items on the picture of the item, or in the free choice square. 4. Explain to the kids that they are going to first predict if all of the items will be able to move with their wind. Ask them to start their predictions with the cotton ball. If they think the cotton ball will move, circle yes under Will it move? on the chart, with their pencil. If they don t think it will move, circle no under Will it move? on the chart with their pencil. Follow the same prediction process with the toothpick and then their free choice item. 7

8 5. Next, let them know they are going to test their predictions by blowing through their straws and trying to see if they can move each item with their wind, one at a time by your instruction, and they will also be recording their findings. 6. Have them pick up their straw, blow on the cotton ball and see if it moves. Have them try it several times to make sure they receive the same results. 7. Now, they need to record their findings. Did it move? If it did, have them circle yes under Did it move? on the chart, with their pencil. If it did not move, have them circle no under Did it move? on the chart, with their pencil. Follow the same process for their toothpick and then their free choice item. 8. We suggest that you do one item at a time, having the kids put their straws down in between so that everyone stays together and organized. 9. Explain to them how sometimes our predictions are right and sometimes they aren t. That is why scientists do experiments. Explain to the students that prediction means guess, not that it is a correct or wrong answer. 10. Have the students gather the cotton balls, toothpicks and straws and throw them away. 11. They can remain at their seats for the next activity. Student Objectives SECTION FIVE PINWHEEL ACTIVITY (15 min. prior to movie) At the completion of this activity, the students will have had the experience of creating a pinwheel that allows them to use their wind and see wind movement. 1. Found in the box provided by Volunteer Council a. Pinwheel paper b. Brass brad, 1 per student plus some extras c. Beads, 1 per student plus some extras d. Straws with hole punched in it, one for each student plus some extras e. Sharpies 2. Found in the classroom a. Scissors b. Crayons c. Glue sticks/glue 8

9 Preparation: Review instructions at home so you will understand how to make the pinwheel. One volunteer should make a sample pinwheel at home to bring to show the class. Please discuss with the other volunteers who will make the sample pinwheel. 1. Locate and distribute the crayons, scissors and glue sticks/glue amongst the students. These items will be found in the classroom, ask a student if you need help. 2. Distribute the pinwheel paper (pre- hole punched center and corners). Place the paper face- down on the table. Have the students write their name on the back side of the paper. 3. Hold up one of the pinwheel pages and explain to the students that they can begin by decorating their pinwheels using the crayons and they may color both sides of the paper. However, tell them DO NOT COLOR IN THE GREY TRIANGLES AND SQUARE. 4. Once colored, tell the students to cut their papers on the diagonal lines from the corners toward the center and to stop at the end of the lines. DO NOT CUT INSIDE THE GREY SQUARE. 5. Steps 6-9 will be completed by the parent volunteers while the students watch the video in section #6. Please explain to the students to leave their pinwheels on their desks and you will come around to help them finish the pinwheel individually while they watch the movie. 6. Next, the volunteer needs to apply glue using a glue stick to the grey triangle on one of the corners and bend the corner over toward the center of the pinwheel. Align the hole on the corner you are bending with the hole in the center and glue it in place. Hold down for about 5 seconds. Do not crease, fold or flatten the paper. Repeat with the other 3 corners working your way around the pinwheel. Hold in place for an extra few seconds after all four corners are glued in the center to be sure the glue holds. 7. Each volunteer needs to take one brass fastener (BRAD), one bead and one hole- punched straw to each student s pinwheel. 8. To put the pinwheel together, first put the BRAD through the center of the pinwheel from the front to the back then put the bead on the BRAD and then put the BRAD through the hole in the straw. 9. Bend the two ends of the BRAD in opposing directions to attach the pinwheel to the straw. Do not attach it too tightly. The pinwheel needs to move freely. 10. After the movie in section #6 is over, encourage the students to experiment with blowing on their pinwheels and waving them in the air to see them spin. They may notice that the pinwheels will spin both forwards and backwards. 11. Have the students gather the crayons, glue sticks and scissors and return them to their proper places. 12. Ask the students to clean up their work areas and return to their seats. 13. Now, proceed to the reading activity in section #7 to complete the program. 9

10 SECTION SIX (25 min.) Student Objectives SID THE SCIENCE KID: WEATHER KID SID: THE WIND DID IT VIDEO Students will be introduced to what impact wind has on their lives. 1.

Found in the classroom a. DVD player b. TV Preparation: Watch the video to familiarize yourself with the content. 1. Explain to the students that they will be watching the DVD while the parent volunteers help them complete their pinwheels. 2. Introduce the video to the students by saying, We have learned a lot about the wind today, now SID is going to teach us a little bit more. 3. At the completion of the movie, return to section #5, step #10 for completion of the pinwheel activity. 10

11 SECTION SEVEN (10min.)
