• It can be small or big things, plastic or metal, or tin cans, or ANYTHING
• After 5 minutes I will ask that we list at least 10 things as a group on what we can use for our instruments

to predict weather forecasts • Can be created by using string or a
material to suspend objects from another object – CDS – Washers (metal circles) – Spoons – Keys
