Cloudy with a Chance of...Nimbus, Stratus, Cirrus or Cumulus

As part of our weather unit I had my students keep a cloud journal.  They had to observe the sky on four days or different times.  They had to draw or take photos of the clouds and identify the types.  
I had the children create tally charts of the types of clouds on each student's poster.  It was a great way to get the kids moving around and looking at each poster. We took the data and made a class graph.  We used the four major types and grouped the combos as other.
This project is part of my Atmosphere and Climate Unit on TPT

Decimal Initial Art (freebie)

Looking for a fun decimal activity?  The kids loved this!!!
          I had the kids create their initials on hundred grids.  They figured out the decimals for each letter and added up the total.

I just made the sheet and did not use.  I had the kids write on the colored paper.
