As part of his school we take time every now and then to review the types of clouds. I printed out Cloud Type lesson kit for free from ETC Press. It included the nomenclature cards and and a few other helpful tools to help show Ace about the various types of clouds. He's still pretty young to really absorb a lot of the science - but the visuals are great.
While on Pinterest I came across a great idea of a view window for the clouds, although when I clicked to obtain it - it was for a classroom and cost over $30 for the kit... so I decided to make my own (if you'd like a copy for personal use only please email me and I will send you the PDF.) It took a naptime to get everything lined up and all the clouds properly identified. It's not perfect, but it is accurate and for my toddler it is a fun way to 'hunt' for clouds. :)
Ace had a lot of fun trying to find the different type of clouds. I think that he'll really enjoy this activity when he's a bit older and can read for himself. For now he likes to use the view window to poke his head through it and look for clouds that way. It makes me smile.
So while I don't think he's learning a lot of the accurate names, he's having fun looking at the sky. We also started to make up the shapes of clouds and that is probably the most fun of all!
