|Pinecone Exploration and Experiments over at Preschool Powol Packets|
Next I visited Science Sparks and checked out their pinecone weather station. After a little research they found that when it is dry pinecones open up, and when it's going to rain they close down. So they placed four pinecones on a visible window sill outside as a weather station. I think that this is an awesome visual and hands on activity for children. I know our friends would eat this up, they would be checking out the window every day! Can't wait to give this one a try as well.
