Observe students conducting real-life investigations outside on a windy day in this live-action video from PEEP and the Big Wide World. You can’t see wind, but you can feel it and you can see what it’s doing. Learn that wind is air in motion and how it can make some things move but not others. Students can use the live-action video to observe, identify, and describe the characteristics of wind and the effect wind has on different things.
