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 product is included in our Grade 5 Alberta Science Bundle.

This product is part of our Weather Bundle.

This hands-on product 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.
  • extension activities that require students to take what they have learned to research Indigenous shelters or to design a tent.

This product has been classroom-tested with several groups of different fifth-grade students and they really enjoyed the hands-on aspects of the experiments. 

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 product aligns with:

  • the Alberta Program of Studies Grade 5 Weather Watch.

This product supports:

  • any upper elementary or middle school weather unit
