CUMULUS clouds: These clouds look like big fluffy cotton balls.
CIRRUS clouds: Pull the cotton balls apart into long, wispy parts.
CUMULONIMBUS clouds: These clouds are also fluffy, but because they are storm clouds, they colored them black with markers.
STRATUS clouds: Students should stretch out the cotton balls, but not completely apart, and then color them gray.
At the end, the students labeled each cloud with its name!
This is a really fun, educational activity that helps the students learn what the clouds look like in the sky.
