Other Rainy Day Activities

  1. Ask the men to predict how much rain will fall during the month. The man who comes closest gets a prize.
  2. Graph the amount of rainfall over the year on a rainfall chart. To make a chart, take a large piece of paper and draw a grid with 12 columns. Write the names of the months under the columns. Place a ruler along the left side of the chart, make a small mark every 1/2", and draw horizontal lines. To fill in the chart, add up all the rain amounts for the month and color in the graph. Here is a sample rainfall chart.
  3. Compare your current rainfall chart with the average rainfall in your area. Is it a dryer or wetter year?
  4. Share these 10 Facts About Rain.
