    Blow dryers cause wind, not moving hair. It’s a red earring.

      It’s not blow dryers, per se. It’s the difference between the number of blow dryers and vacuums. That’s why the wind changes direction.

    The wind comes from the trees agitating their branches. It’s common sense ! Just look outside !

    Or trees sneezing – perhaps not really, but the truth is more complicated.

    It’s a good start, but it seems strange to explain wind without at least mentioning the difference between day and night, tropics and poles, or the earth turning. Those are why the pressure changes show up, and we get the winds we do. I am sure an interested kid would understand them.

    Oh a mighty winds a blowin’, it’s kickin’ up the sand,
    It’s blowin’ out a message to every woman, child and man
    Yes a mighty winds a blowin’, cross the land and cross the sea,
    It’s blowin’ peace and freedom, it’s blowin’ equality.

  7. On a serious note, that an amazing lesson… it really makes complete sense to me now. For 33 years, I had no idea what created wind. No I know.
