In this lesson, children will make a model of a wind sock and observe the direction of the wind. Young learners can suspend their wind socks outside on poles to see the wind's direction. "Build a Wind Sock" is Activity 14 in CAP's booklet Aerospace Education for the Very Young. Find the lesson HERE.
