How Is Wind Chill Calculated?

Here in Maine it snowed all day yesterday. I like the snow. What I don’t like is the bitter wind that follows the day after a snow storm. Today’s daytime forecast for my area has a high temperature of 1F and the wind chill down to -31F. If you live in a cold climate, your students might wonder how the wind chill factor is calculated. The following video explains how wind chill is calculated. The video comes from Mind Your Decisions. Use the video with Vizia or EDpuzzle to create a flipped lesson about wind chill.

In case you’re wondering, we still have school when it is this cold. It’s only large amounts of snow that keep schools from opening.
