Can your students—
• Track a hurricane?
• Illustrate the inside of a thunderstorm?
• Describe the basics of urban air quality?
• Make rain fall on their desks?
Project Earth Science: Meteorology, Revised 2nd Edition, involves students in activities that focus on the origin and composition of Earth’s atmosphere, factors that contribute to weather, and the concept of air masses and how they interact to produce weather. With 19 hands-on, teacher-tested classroom activities, 11 background readings, and a supplemental resource guide, this new edition provides teachers and students with the necessary tools to bring the atmosphere right into the classroom—without blowing the budget. The self-directed activities and corresponding readings include making clouds and hail; building weather maps; and investigating the causes of smog, ozone depletion, and acid rain. Whether exploring basic principles or following real-world examples, students will agree that discovering how weather works can be fun!
