Weather Belt Loop

The Weather Belt Loop is a very educational and fun Belt Loop for the boys. The three requirements are:

1. Draw a poster that shows and explains the water cycle. There is a great resource on the KidZone website

2. Set up a simple weather station to record rainfall, temperature, air pressure, or evaporation for one week. Check out the Franklin Institutes web site for instructions on how to make a weather journal, barometer, hygrometer, rain gauge, weather vane and compass.

3. Watch the weather forecast on your local news.

This was a fun activity for the boys and doing some of the experiments that are on these websites really helped demonstrate the water cycle.
