We're joining today's STEM Friday blog about autumn with our Explore Weather and Climate! title. Explore Weather and Climate! teaches kids ages 6-9 exactly why seasons happen and what is going on out there to make the weather change and climates differ.
From Chapter 1, your kids will be preparing to be future meteorologists with their own Weather Prediction Chart. They'll be off making a Weather Game for you to enjoy, a rain stick for your entertainment, and figuring out the Doppler effect using all sorts of odds and ends from around the house. If you're lucky, they'll share their Edible Climate Zone Map -- and if you're really lucky, they'll choose to make it out of cookie dough instead of pizza dough (maybe you can use your powers of persuasion with that one)!
By the end of the book, your kids will be able to discuss concepts that can be tricky for some adults. How much do you really know about air pressure, supercell tornadoes, and thundersnow? And they'll be armed with the knowledge and the homemade tools to make informed predictions about the weather. So listen when your little scientist tells you to bring your umbrella to work!
