- Then, colour the elements with crayons. Write down the names in each segment with a sketch pen.
- On a piece of cardboard, cut out an arrow. Colour it. Write ‘Weather today is’.
- Make a hole in the circle with a board pin.
- Insert the board pin into the cardboard arrow and fix it at the centre of the wheel.
Your weather wheel is all set!
Encourage your child to set the arrow to the correct segment by observing the weather outside. How about a game? Encourage them to predict the weather for each day and compare it with the actual.
Through this activity, your child learns about the different weather conditions, which enhances their cognition. They also learn to pay more attention to the change in weather each day.
