Learn About Foggy Notions:
Step 1: You've probably seen fog. That's because when fog is around, it's about all you can see. Well, fog is a cloud that forms very close to the ground.
Step 2: In nature, when a mass of cold air bumps into a mass of warm humid air, millions of tiny droplets of water are formed. That's fog.
Step 3: Here's a way to get some cold air and some warm air together and make fog: Fill a bottle 1/3 full of very hot water. Add a few drops of rubbing alcohol. Put a piece of ice over the top of the bottle and watch fog develop.
Blowing in the Wind is a science experiment for kids that measures the objects that are carried on air currents. Read about this science project on the next page of science projects for kids: weather and seasons.
