This unit will begin by reading the book Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, written by Judy Barrett. After reading the book, pose the question-Which type of cloud do you think the food fell from in the town of Chewandswallow? This question will begin a week long study of the four major cloud types: Cirrus, Stratus, Cumulus, and Cumulonimbus.
