‘Clouds’ is a PowerPoint presentation on how clouds form in the sky. The module is designed as a Teacher’s Resource Guide and a classroom presentation for elementary and middle school students; grades 2nd through 6th. High-resolution photographs from several government websites are used to give an easy to follow tutorial on the major types of clouds found in Earth’s atmosphere. The module also discusses the Water Cycle and the formation of thunderstorms. It is a great beginner’s tool. Numerous websites are provided at the end for additional information on cloud formation, thunderstorms, tornadoes, and general weather phenomena.
