This all-inclusive book takes a wide range of meteorological phenomena—including clouds, rain, snow, and fog—and examines their relationship to each other in order to explain how weather works in an easy-to-grasp way. Important scientific concepts such as energy, temperature, and electricity are described in the context of the weather cycle as well as the various climates on Earth, and how we as humans fit into the scheme. Key questions are posed to readers in textboxes to engage critical thinking skills in line with the Core Concept standards, helping connect the concepts included in the book with readers' own observations of the real world.
