Outdoor Hour Challenge ~ Spring Weather

For our ongoing seasonal weather study, we didn't go far. We stepped into our backyard and looked up at the sky!
The weater has been beautiful here in South Western Ontario these past few days and today again. The temperature is 18 degrees Celsius, with a light breeze. It is very sunny with only a few high cumulus clouds.

We made a sundial but realized that there was still a bit too much wind to use this paper sundial, which led to a short talk about what materials would be best to use for a more permanent sundial.

For more ideas on weather observations, you can visit the Handbook of Nature Study Weather Observations post.


  1. Look at that sky! So pretty and blue. Keep me posted on your sundial. :)

    Thanks for sharing your weather.
