How Do Storms Form?

Our Grade 4 students worked backwards from their theories about storms to hypothesize about the key parts of a storm:

  • A cloud, which needs evaporated water.
  • A water source, like a puddle.
  • The sun to heat the puddle to cause the evaporation.
  • The cloud is made when all the gas is gathered together.
  • The atmosphere to keep the cloud from floating away.
