Clover Kids learn about weather ...

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach-Allamakee County hosted Saturday Clover Kids October 17, and with the changing seasons it was the perfect time to talk about weather. Clover Kids spent time describing their feelings about different types of weather such as sunny, rainy and stormy. Thoughtful words like happy, lazy, nervous and scared were shared.

After reading the book “Wonderful Weather”, everyone agreed sunny weather puts us in a better mood over rainy weather. However, Clover Kids had fun making their own rain out of a cup, water, foam shaving cream and blue food coloring. They also made a tornado in a jar (photo above) and an anemometer, a tool that measures wind speed (photo below).

The group is limited in numbers to allow for social distancing with a 4-H at Home option available for youth to complete activities on their own. For more information about 4-H and upcoming activities, contact Becky Rea at the Allamakee County Extension and Outreach Office at 563-568-6345 or http://www.extension.iastate.edu/allamakee/.
