These five different experiments test various types of fabric for specific weather conditions with minimal prep for you. This outcome is often overlooked by teachers because it's not easy to come up with ideas, but we've taken care of that for you.

This resource is included in our Grade 5 Alberta Science Bundle. It is also part of our Weather Bundle.

This hands-on resource includes:

  • instructions for the experiments can be done by students independently or through demonstrations.
  • student pages in several variations so you can easily differentiate.
  • answer keys and suggested answers.
  • an activity to learn about fair tests and the scientific method.
  • assessment activities that require students to take what they have learned to research Indigenous shelters or tent design.
  • a digital version with loose text that can be read by assistive technology.

To complete the experiments you will need a hairdryer, glass jars, candles, and some fabric to test (we used an old wool sock, an old vinyl tablecloth, and a cotton shirt). 

This resource aligns with:

  • Alberta Program of Studies Grade 5 Science Weather Watch

This resource supports:

  • any weather unit.
