In this lower elementary–level guide to meteorology, both the science and basic premises of weather forecasting are explained in dynamic, full-color spreads. Readers are invited to examine the role of cause and effect in weather patterns and predict the possible consequences of specific weather events. Compare and Contrast boxes invite readers to relate different means of predicting weather phenomena, while Think About It boxes excite readers to return to the text and engage in critical thinking—all key components of the Common Core Standards for reading informational text. Vocabulary boxes define unfamiliar terms, helping make this a truly accessible text.
