Wind sock craft

This week we are studying wind and my class made windsocks out of construction paper. Super simple and fun!

I love that my firstie decorated his windsock with pumpkins! 

Fold paper "hot dog style"

Trace the crease line with crayon or pencil

Cut strips only up to the crease line. Students can decorate the top half.

Staple, punch a hole in one side, and tie twine/string/or yarn through the hole so your students can hang on to their windsocks.

We took our windsocks outside and stood with our arms still to see if there was wind. The wind today was really strong. We journaled about what would happen to our wind socks if we had no wind. We also discussed how you could use a windsock to tell what direction wind was blowing from. Very easy and the kids were all eager to take their windsocks home and some even wanted to make more!
