What are the Elements of the Weather?


In this stimulating volume, readers learn about the elements of the weather, such as temperature, wind, humidity, clouds, precipitation, and atmospheric pressure. They also examine weather satellites, Tornado Alley, condensation, and the water cycle. Vocabulary boxes offer additional guidance to readers, and the Compare and Contrast and Think About It sidebars provide students with opportunities to ponder concepts in exciting and creative ways; for example, "The terms 'alto' meaning 'high' and 'nimbus,' meaning 'rain,' further describe clouds. What do you think a cumulonimbus cloud is?"
