Interactive video lesson plan for: Cloud Tank Magic | Shanks FX | PBS Digital Studios

Activity overview:

A cloud tank consists of a bottom layer of salt water and a top layer of fresh water and when various forms of liquid are injected into tank, clouds are produced. This was the common technique that Hollywood used for decades to capture supernatural weather.

This video is a compilation of as many cloud tank examples as I could think of.
