This week, I’m featuring some wonderful Montessori-inspired spring activities. The photo shows a unique activity for demonstrating a raincloud from The Moveable Alphabet (blog is no longer available).
I love that the activity has a science component and is a great exercise in eye-hand coordination as well. Check out the post at The Moveable Alphabet for descriptive photos and directions on how to prepare that activity and two other activities related to rain.

Thanks! I think I am going to use the parts of a leaf and parts of a seed for my daughter who is learning about the cycle of life. Oh and I am dropping by from the HHH.

Thank you for sharing this activity with us. I thought it was a wonderful idea! And this is why I have “stolen” your idea for my preschool (but I did mention your blog as the source). Check it out on: http://theguilletots.blogspot.com/2011/04/naming-clouds.html
Great post about your study of clouds, Aude! Thanks so much for linking to my blog! 🙂
