Through clear instructions and scientific illustrations, students can conduct easy yet engaging experiments to examine the science behind weather. Using easy-to-obtain household materials, readers will discover how Torricelli’s barometer works, the terminal velocity of raindrops, and how density affects air masses in Earth’s atmosphere. Readers are guided through applying the scientific method to gain a better understanding of the basic concepts demonstrated by each experiment. Safety tips educate students on the code of conduct expected when conducting experiments. Also included are an appendix with science supply companies, a glossary, further reading with books and websites, and an index.
