        Windy City! | PLUM LANDING

        Explore how structures like buildings affect the speed and direction of wind flow in this media gallery from PLUM LANDING. 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.

        Find more environmental science resources at the PLUM LANDING website.
