Lesson 1.2: The Ten Main Clouds

Clouds come in many shapes and sizes. There are ten main types, each with their different characteristics. Clouds are like expressions on the face of the atmosphere, so that makes them a good way to discuss feelings.

Lesson Objective: This lesson is about learning to recognise the ten main types of cloud (known officially as cloud ‘genera’). Students will find out what makes them different and what similarities there are between the different ones. They will choose favourite ones to paint or create with collages. Students will learn definitions of feelings and how to observe feelings like they’re learning to observe clouds.
