Measuring the Wind

Yesterday afternoon we made anemometers.  I wasn't even sure what one was until last year when we made them in science.  The kid really enjoyed  making them.
I am fairly sure you can tell from the picture what supplies you will need and how to put it together but if you can't let me know and I will provide step by step directions.  I think the trickiest part was making sure the cups all faced the same direction.

Since we have been working patterns I had the student make a pattern on their card stock strips prior to gluing the cups on.


  1. what did you set it on?

    1. Nothing. We held it in our hand. It is a pencil.
