Learning about clouds with fun facts (and a free printable)
Let’s learn with cloud facts for kids!
Learning types of clouds can be pretty tough but learning things about them is way easier!
I remember how hard it was for me to learn those types but it took me few seconds to learn that other planets have clouds too and that Jupiter and Saturn have clouds made out of ammonia – I thought that fact was cool and I will probably know it for life.
And that’s the point of this page, to share fun facts (which you can also print as a fun “worksheet”) that are easy to remember and add to kids “knowledge base”.
Weather forecast for today? Cloudy! 🙂
