W is for Wind: Experiment - Can the Wind Move It?

The arrival of Spring brings lots of windy days. Today we explored the letter Ww and the different types of things that wind can move with an easy and fun at-home experiement.

Here is a recap of our activties:

Letter W Do-a-Dot Page (from Confessions of a Homeschooler)

Letter Ww Hunt (from Beginning Reading)

Letter Ww Word Hunt (by Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas)

Experiment: Can the Wind Move It?

 What You Need:
 Wind Experiment Template (Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas)
tissue paper
cotton ball

What To Do:
1. The Lil Divas cut out the pictures of the items were using in our experiement.

2. They hypothesized which objects would move with wind blowing and which ones would not move by putting the corresponding pictures in the correct column on their sheet (do not glue)

3. One at a time I presented them with the objects (place on the floor or table top) and they used their straws to blow wind at the objects.

4. After we went through all 8 items the Lil Divas went back to their sheets and checked if their hypothesis had been correct. They made corrections if necessary and glued the pictures onto the correct column.

We had a fun day exploring wind! Enjoy!



  1. Hi there, thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on the garden pack for the kids. Here is the link (should be direct)

    I fixed it in the blog post too! Thanks so much


  2. What a great wind experiment! I never even thought W is for wind! lol I will have to bookmark this and remember it when we get there. Thanks for sharing! :)

  3. Great stuff here. If you had visited me this week there would have been a lot of wind to play with. :-) Beautiful daughters.

    I hope your plans this weekend involves sun of some kind!


  4. I love the wind experiment! What a fun idea! I need to get a bingo dot pen too... so many great ideas with those. Thanks for sharing at For the Kids Friday!

  5. Looks like a great day! When we did the wind project, we did it in our long hallway and all 3 kids had a race to see who was the 'windiest'
    We laughed when the oldest won, because we always tell her she talks too much! lol!

  6. Great science learning - creating hypotheses, making observations, collecting and recording data - awesome job!


Thanks for taking the time to visit Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas! I hope you will stay awhile to explore all we have to offer!
