AUSTIN (KXAN) — Clouds take on the form of all shapes and sizes – some fluffy, others wispy, and the mean ones – tall and dark. We can use clouds as a way to tell us what kind of weather to expect that day.

In today’s episode of “Kristen’s Classroom,” Meteorologist Kristen Currie discusses various cloud types and the weather they’re associated with.


Supplies needed:

  • cotton balls
  • glue stick
  • glitter glue (optional)
  • marker
  • paper

Apply glue to the paper, and use the below examples to make different cloud types using the cotton balls. Use a gray marker or glitter glue to color the bottom of clouds capable of precipitation.
