What’s Included in the Printable?
This printable Cloud Activity Set has 7 pages of interactive learning to teach kids all about different types of clouds and how they form! This printable includes:
Cards with the names, definitions, and illustrations of different cloud types
This Cloud Activity Set includes a full page of printable cards that include the names of different cloud types, descriptions of what each one looks like, and illustrations of each cloud type. After reviewing each of these with your child, you could:

- play go-fish with the cards
- create your own matching game with them
A page for weather tracing
One of the pages included has weather-related lines that kids can trace to practice fine motor skills (great for younger elementary ages).
A mini-assessment on cloud types
Once your child is fairly comfortable with understanding the different types of clouds, use the multiple-choice, mini-assessment page that’s included in this Cloud Activity Set to see how much he/she has learned!
A fill-in-the-blank page with a word bank
This printable also includes a fill-in-the-blank page that you can use to aid and assess comprehension. The word bank contains cloud-related words that you can teach as vocabulary/spelling words, too!
A page for making cloud-gazing observations
Of course, cloud gazing is a must when you are studying clouds! This observation sheet is perfect for kids to use as they categorize the cool clouds they see.
A chart for weather observations
A weather chart is also included for making observations about weather and cloud patterns over time!
