This is a bundled crossword puzzle set for a unit on the weather and the atmosphere. Each of the five crossword puzzles featured has a different theme: heating of the Earth, air pressure, winds, moisture in the air, and weather patterns. Students reinforce a total of sixty-two vocabulary terms in the complete series. Each crossword puzzle is a single page with the clues conveniently placed below the puzzle. I provided a single page word bank series for all five crossword puzzles. The clues, title, and directions for each crossword puzzle can be edited. I included a one-page answer key for each crossword puzzle with the answers in red font.
