Students learn that the combination of air, water, and heat from the sun can generate gentle clouds, ferocious storms, beautiful sunsets, frost, dew, sweltering heat, and everything else in between. Dazzling and exciting video footage shows the wide variety of weather, while animation shows why we have seasons. Students are introduced to meteorology as an important profession that helps us understand weather and its effects on all life. The basics of air, wind, and water are covered to illustrate that weather is both dynamic and simple at the same time.
