Our fabulous, easy-to-read Weather Station has 6 sensors that collect data related to the weather and environment.
What better way to get the children involved in the environment around them? If they see the numbers and measurements, and you teach them how to take notes about what’s happening hour-to-hour, or day-to-day, they will begin to understand the relationships between the varying measurements!
Once they understand that, they’ll be able to make their own weather forecasts!
How cool is that??!!
