Over 80 activities about the science behind weather and climate, from heat and temperature, pressure, relative humidity, to wind, convection, storms, cloud formation, hurricanes, and more.


Science of Weather
Teaching Notes 1.AIR

A first set of notes, step-by-step instructions, focus questions and word banks, diagrams, real examples of discussion with students, problem-solving tips, to help in teaching the first part of Science of Weather.


Science of Weather
Teaching Notes 2.HEAT

More notes, instructions,tips and FAQs about heat and temperature, including advice to teach map coloring and contouring, and the analysis of temperature maps, air masses, fronts, and midlatitude cyclones.
