Wild About Weather
50 Wet, Windy & Wonderful ActivitiesBook - 2004
Who knew weather could be such fun? With its humorous approach, fascinating facts, great pictures, and cool craft projects, there's no better introduction to the often wacky world of weather than this. It covers all the ins and outs of how weather works: the atmosphere and air pressure; sunshine, rain, storms, and wind; and strange phenomena. Travel the globe to examine different climates and weather systems. Check out wild weather phenomena, including tornadoes and hurricanes. Keep a weather log, and make a real barometer, thermometer, and wind vane. Every chapter has a Forecaster's Corner, which children can use to make their own accurate forecasts, and a Weather Challenge sidebar. All this, and weather lore, quotes, and statistics will get (and keep) kids' attention. The author lives in Asheville, NC.
