Show your students what weather is, some of the tools forecasters use to measure it, and how certain types of extreme weather form. Discover the three elements of weather—sunlight, water, and air—as well as air temperature, air pressure, humidity, and air masses. Look at tools including the thermometer, anemometer, wind sock, weather vane, barometer, barograph, rain gauge, and weather balloon, and take a closer look at 14 types of weather including blizzards, dust storms, earthquakes, floods, fog, droughts, hurricanes, ice storms, mud slides, thunder and lightning, tornadoes, tsunamis, volcanoes, and wildfires.
Students can personalize this book by coloring the illustrations and tracing the key words in cursive in the space provided. Incorporate some fun and handwriting practice into science. A review activity sheet with answer key is also included. 18 pages total.
