Show your class what causes hurricanes, heat waves, and lightning storms as they learn the fundamentals of meteorology. Then take a closer look at global warming and discover how humans affect the climate. Meteorology: Moisture, heat, and air are the basic ingredients of every weather system. See how meteorologists use satellites and radar to measure these ingredients and try to predict the weather. Storms: Follow the path of a tornado and enter the eye of a hurricane as you learn how storms start, move, and dissipate. Believe it or not, they all start with a single raindrop. Global Warming: A balance of greenhouse gases is vital in regulating the temperature of the Earth. Learn how humans may be disturbing this delicate balance and creating the greenhouse effect, and what can be done about it.
