Humidity Poem

Dry brown bark,
On dark brown tree,
Got wet from high,
This water vapor in the sky,
Changed spider’s day,
I’ll tell you why…
Mrs. Spider,
Climbed to go,
To a party,
Don’t you know…
But when this spider,
Did arrive,
She had a very big surprise,
Sticky, sweaty humid air,
Had curled up Spider's,
Straight black hair!

spider with long curly hair

What is humidity?
Humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air.
Humidity is measured by a device called a hygrometer.
When humidity is very high, we say it is ‘muggy,’ or ‘sticky’ outside.
High humidity makes your sweat less effective in cooling your body down, therefore it is important to take precautions when you are active in areas or days with high humidity.
When humidity reaches 100% the air is saturated, clouds will form and rain will generally start to fall.
Humidity can make your hair ‘frizzy’ because hair absorbs water vapor from the air and expands.
