This fun, fascinating, and user-friendly website is designed
to help kids learn all of the different types of weather and
the science behind it. Created by a television meteorologist,
it offers information through simple text and lots of helpful,
colorful illustrations that answer two basic questions about
various types of weather: "What is it?" and "What causes it?"
When you get to the site, you'll see an introduction and some recent weather news stories.
Then, use the menu on the left side of the screen to learn about:
*Rain & Floods
You'll also find information on weather safety, weather instruments, and weather folklore.
DON'T MISS THE WEATHER EXPERIMENTS! It's on the menu, but here's the direct link: http://www.weatherwizkids.com/WxExperiments.htm
Get instructions for how to:
*Make a Tornado
*Make a Cloud in a Bottle
