Clouds Objectives: Students will be able to correctly identify cirrus, cumulous, and stratus clouds. Students will be able to describe cirrus, cumulous, and stratus clouds.
What they look like: High, thin, feather-like clouds. Seen on: Fair weather day. These clouds are the highest of all the clouds, at 18,000 feet or higher. Cirrus Clouds
What they look like: White, puffy clouds. They are vertical clouds that continue to grow upwards instead of horizontally. Seen on: Fair weather days.
