All About Wind & Clouds (DVD)
All About Wind & Clouds (DVD)
D092

Cool breezes or mighty gusts, soft and fluffy, or dark and foreboding. Wind and clouds are aspects of nature that fascinate us, and they can help meteorologists predict upcoming weather patterns. All About Wind & Clouds takes young students on a lively exploration of these everyday weather forms, where they'll learn more about the various types of clouds and how the wind affects them. A visit with Dr. Jon Nese, chief meteorologist at The Franklin Institute Science Museum in Philadelphia, demonstrates how wind speed is measured with an anemometer, while a fun, hands-on demonstration shows kids how they can build their own weather vane to monitor wind patterns in their area. Part of the multivolume Weather for Children DVD Series. A teacher's guide is available online. 23 minutes. Grades K to 4.
