Last week at forest school, we all made our own rain gauges. This week we took some rulers with us so that the children could measure how much rain we had had this week. When we got to the site, some of us found that our rain gauges had fallen over! This gave us a really good opportunity to explore other ways of making sure that they stay upright. Luckily some rain gauges did stay upright this week so we were able to measure each other’s. We then used leaves on a stick to record how many centimetres of rain we had measured.
