Weather and Forecasting Studies contains information and projects explaining forms of precipitation, cloud identification, weather gauges, mountains and elevation, seasons, thunder and lightning, convection and winds, weather forecasting, the jet stream and volcanoes, the weather cycle, making a wind vane and a rain gauge.
Weather Lesson continues the study with the layers of the atmosphere, the measurement of temperature in the atmosphere, and the causes of atmospheric temperature variations.
Weather Project and Mapping is divided into four main parts. In part one, students create a large weather map of Canadian/Northern USA cities indicating atmospheric pressure, temperature, and wind speed/direction, drawing isobars, isotherms, high/low pressure centers, and a cold front. In part two, students define certain elements of weather. In part three, students define certain weather instruments. Finally, in part four, students answer various weather related questions.
