National Ride the Wind Day gives us the inspiration to harness the wind in the Classroom. From fun experiments to craft projects, you never know what the wind will blow in. We can study its power while having a little bit of fun, too.

We also offer a look at bats, the creatures of the night. International Bat Night each year strives to teach us about bats and dispel some of the myths associated with the.


Check out all of this week’s projects and explore the world of wind and bats! We would love to see completed projects, too. Share any of them by clicking on the contact us link.

Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.


First, we revisit some past projects that harness the wind. Then we’ll take a look at a new project from Finally, be sure to check out the Bat Facts coloring page to learn a little bit about these fascinating creatures.

  • Last spring we took a look at paper airplanes. Check out all the projects associated with that classroom page.
  • We also created a fun pinwheel project that will have students using a little bit of wind power.
