If the kids want to go on a picnic and want to know what the weather is like, will it rain? Today, Alpha Science Class teaches kids to make their own hygrometer, a fun weather science experiment for kids where kids will be able to predict the weather on their own. At the same time, through this kid's science experiment activity, you can unlock the hidden mysteries of nature. And show parents the power of science.

Alpha Science Classroom: Make your own hygrometer, materials needed

  • A pencil

  • A ruler

  • A sheet of thin card (16 cm x 4 cm)

  • One sheet of hard card (24 cm x 30 cm)

  • A pair of scissors

  • A piece of sticky tape

  • A piece of hair, about 25 cm long

  • One wooden board (24 cm x 4 cm x 4 cm)

  • Six pins

  • A fine point colored pen

Alpha science classroom: Make Your Own Hygrometer, steps to make.

Step 1: With the help of a ruler, children draw an arrow about 13 cm x 2 cm on a thin card.

Step 2: Children cut the arrow out of the thin card and then use pins to secure the hard card along the long end of the wooden block.

Step 3: Children use sticky tape to attach one end of the hair wire to the top of the hard card, and the other end of the hair wire should be attached to the back of the arrow.

Step 4: Children place this arrow on the hard card and stretch it completely. Refer to the picture to get an idea of what this looks like.

Step 5: Children attach one end of the arrow to the hard card with a pushpin.


Step 6: Also as a final step, children place this homemade hygrometer on the outside. It's time to start taking readings! Be extra careful to make sure your hygrometer doesn't tip over. When the sun is shining, mark on the card where the arrow is pointing. Next to this mark, write "dry". You will notice that when the climate is wetter, the arrow will point lower. In this case, write "humid" next to the marker. This way you can note down the different weather conditions.

I believe that today's alpha science classroom was very easy for children to learn. This interesting children's weather science experiment helped children to unlock the mystery of nature's weather and let them understand the code of nature's weather changes. At the same time, this kid's science experiment activity also exercised children's observation and hands-on skills, so that children can love science experiments and become the most powerful weatherman.

Alpha science toys has also prepared weather science experiment kits for children, so that they can enjoy solving the mysteries of science and grow happily in the learning process.
