How is rainfall measured? Students can find out with a rain gauge they make in class! What’s more, they get to upcycle a plastic bottle that might otherwise sit in a landfill.
The only supplies you’ll need include:
- Empty two-liter plastic bottles
- Scissors to cut the bottle
- Clean pebbles, gravel, marbles, or glass craft stones (the stones can be purchased at many dollar stores)
- Masking tape
- Permanent markers
