Kindergarten Remote Learning Summer Science Activities: Up in the Sky

Welcome! We’ve provided a variety of learning activities to engage your child in a scientific exploration of objects Up in the Sky. So, let’s begin!

Exploring Up in the Sky with Labs and Activities

Plan a Severe Weather Safety Kit

In this activity, children learn more about a type of severe weather and plan a weather safety kit. This activity takes approximately 30–40 minutes.

Measuring Weather with Tools

In this activity, children collect weather data and describe patterns when making observations. You will need access to weather tools such as a weather chart, rain gauge, thermometer, or windsock.
