Explore how structures like buildings affect the speed and direction of wind flow in this media gallery from the PLUM LANDING: Explore Outdoors. This media gallery pairs a PLUM LANDING animation and a related hands-on activity to provide about one hour of programming. Start by having kids watch The Manta Ray Mystery, a short animated video about swirling city winds that create an unexpected sight. Then, head outdoors to explore today’s wind with the hands-on outdoor activity Wild Wind. If time permits, wrap up your day by completing one or more of the “Explore Some More” activities.
