Strengthen student understanding of different cloud types with this cloze reading worksheet.
Cloud Types for Kids
Are you looking for an activity to help your students differentiate between the different types of clouds? Teach Starter has created a ready-to-go worksheet that will encourage your students to show what they know about the different types of clouds.
With this worksheet, students will draw the four different cloud types (cumulus, stratus, cirrus, and nimbus). Additionally, students will complete the cloze reading activity by writing the missing words in each blank.
An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!
Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
If there are students looking for a challenge, encourage them to create an infographic or poster showing the different types of clouds and information about each.
For students who need additional support, consider listing the words needed for the activity in a random order on the whiteboard. This will give students the options to use as they are completing the worksheet.
