Base 2 make rain gauges

Base 2 are making rain gauges as part of their geography topic of Natural disasters. We have collected empty bottles and cut the tops off them. We have measured 50ml lines on the outside and will place them in the school grounds and in surrounding areas of Newport and Muxton.

Every week we will take the measurements of how much rainfall there has been and record in a table.

I wonder how much rain will fall before we break up for half term?

    I really enjoyed making the water gages, and placing them on school grounds. It was a bit hard making the markings on the bottle because the gaps between two different markings are tiny! Still I enjoyed it.
