What is it
This Weather Science kit offers an handful of essential experiments to address common questions kids have on how weather systems work.
Weather is one of the ever popular topics of conversation and a great area of scientific study and this activity set allows kids to investigate wind, rain, storms, clouds, temperature, evaporation, pressure and more!
Build a weather station and follow the simple instructions delivered mostly through illustrations to carry out 8 weather experiments.
From the award winning Thames & Kosmos Little Labs range where younger children are introduced to the concept and process of experimentation.

What our experts think
This kit introduces children to different concepts of weather, engaging their creativity and logical thinking as they take part in real-life experiments! Our testers followed the pictorial and colour-coded instructions to help them match up the pieces for the experiments and they used their hand-eye coordination as they connected the parts together.
It was lovely to see the children get active and excited as they ran outdoors with the wind gauge to measure the wind. This kind of active learning engages children while developing their understanding of important science concepts covered in the National Curriculum. It also promoted discussion – measuring different temperatures led to talk about holidays in different climates. Relating the concepts to real-world examples worked great in developing the children’s understanding of them.
