In this self-directed and interactive webquest, students either explore as an introduction or review a weather and atmosphere unit (7th-grade science essential standards). The webquest begins with the layers and characteristics of the atmosphere. Next it moves on to different causes of the weather, including air pressure.

Following winds, comes weather fronts: Cold Fronts, Warm Fronts, Stationary Fronts and Occluded Fronts. Weather Fronts leads into storms: Thunderstorms, Tornadoes, and Hurricanes.
