Curious KIDSS Data Collection sheets ask students to observe and record cloud types and amounts. Students can use their records to look for patterns between types and amounts of clouds and weather events (sunny days, rain today, rain in a few days, thunderstorms).
The emphasis of this section is NOT for students to memorize cloud names. Students need to practice observing different cloud types and recording their observations. The emphasis is on finding patterns and making observations, not on the names of the types of clouds themselves.
The Do You Know That Clouds Have Names? clouds storybook is created by the Elementary GLOBE program and contains teacher notes at the bottom of most pages. Read through these notes before reading the book to students. Often these notes contain additional content knowledge and explanations about what clouds look like and how they form.
