Good morning from #CMSMatHome! This is our 60th daily post in this series, and we’ll consider this a small reason to celebrate! 🙃
Today, we’ll construct a rain gauge.
You’ll need a clear plastic bottle, ruler, marker, and some rocks. Cut the top section off a clear bottle with the help of an adult. Use a ruler to mark measuring increments, starting about 2″ from the bottom. Add rocks to the bottle and fill it with water to the 0 mark to calibrate your gauge.
Invert the top of the bottle to act as a funnel inserted to the bottom part, then place your gauge on a flat surface somewhere outdoors. On a rainy day, observe and record rainfall amounts.
