Wind Speed

Patty Rooks

I do not know about you, but that wind could go away. It has been exceptionally windy the past few weeks.
There has been damage all over — I’ve even seen a trampoline on someone’s fence. I am going to say that is not where it should be! Well, there really is not anything you can do about the weather, but it has made me think, how can you measure wind speed?

Well, let’s get started!

Remember to ask an adult before doing this experiment.

  • 2 straws
  • Tack
  • Good heavy masking tape
