Overview:
Print off and laminate the names of enough winds. Hide them in the classroom or in the school
grounds. As the students individually, in pairs or small groups to find a wind. They should then
research the wind they have found, answering questions like:
– Where is the wind found? Use an atlas or Google Earth to find the place and see how the
local geography affects the wind (are there mountains nearby?)
– When does the wind occur?
– How long does it last for and how big is the area it affects?
– Do people like this wind?
Their research could be presented using PowerPoint or large sheets of sugar paper, and/ or could be
used as the basis for a story or newspaper report about the wind.
