  • How can the speed of wind be measured?
    By: Lili & Julia
  • Materials
    2 Straws
    4 Mini cups
    A Pencil
    Scotch Tape
  • Our First Step
    First we took the pin and stuck it in the eraser of the pencil.
  • Our Second Step
    Next we used scotch tape and taped two straws together in the center.
  • Our Third Step
    Then we put holes in the cups and stuck the straws in the holes. Then we put the pin in the center of the straws and in the eraser.
  • Then to test the speed of wind, we went outside and went to the corner of
    Johnston and Philadelphia street. On the next slide try and count how many times it goes around. But sometimes it can be a little tricky!
    Our Fourth Step
  • How many times it went around
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
  • How you can measure the speed of wind
    Well you can make something like we did or you could do this one:
  • Speed Of Wind
  • One Kind of a Beaufort scale
  • More Information
    • Wind is the fastest growing source of electricity in the world
    • The wind blows because air has weight
    • Cold air weighs more than warm air
    • Wind forms when cold air meets warm air
    • Heat makes air start moving!
    • Wind blows heat away from your body
    • A gale is a VERY strong wind
  • The LORD said, “Go out and stand on the mountains in the presence of the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. 1 kings 19:11
  • Lili: To me the bible verse means that God is the most amazing person in the world and can do what he wants to do.
    Julia: To me it means God is ever where we look and go and he can do what ever he feels like doing.
