Wind (DVD)
Wind (DVD)
D098

This program explores the mechanics of measuring wind speed and direction as well as the use of wind as an energy source. Students will also learn how wind occurs by finding out about the roles of temperature, air pressure and the sun. Graphics and animation will clearly illustrate these patterns. Students will also learn how hot-air balloons work in this exciting look at weather's invisible force. One of six volumes in the Weather Fundamentals DVD Series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library in Action Collection. This title correlates to the National Science Education Standards for Earth and Space Science -- structure of Earth's system, Earth's history and Earth in the solar system. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online that features additional information on the topic, vocabulary words, discussion questions, follow-up activities and lists of recommended books & Internet resources. 23 minutes. Grades 4 to 7.

Rain & Snow (DVD)
Rain & Snow (DVD)
D097

In this program, concise explanations of the various types of precipitation provide students with insight into how rain, snow, sleet, hail, fog and mist form, as well as how the water cycle -- evaporation, condensation and precipitation -- constantly "recycles" water around the world. Students will also learn how the density of water changes in different states. See typical weather patterns across North America, and watch how a ski resort keeps slopes looking white.

Meteorology (DVD)
Meteorology (DVD)
D096

Did you ever wonder how weather forecasters predict the weather? This program looks at how meteorologists gather and interpret current weather data. Students will be introduced to everything from weather maps, weather stations and satellites to airplanes, weather ships and weather balloons. Students will also learn how to read a meteorological weather map and see the office of the National Weather Service.

Hurricanes & Tornadoes (DVD)
Hurricanes & Tornadoes (DVD)
D095

In this program, students will study both phenomena from their development to the full-blown storms that wreak havoc on land. Through satellite images, Doppler radar, graphics and storm footage, this program shows how meteorologists and "storm chasers" use data such as location, movement, wind speed, temperature and air pressure to predict the course of these storms, and provide early warnings to people living in their path. In a hands-on experiment, students will re-create the circular pattern of a tornado's vortex to further illustrate these concepts.

Clouds (DVD)
Clouds (DVD)
D094

In this program, students will learn how clouds form, the different types of clouds and the important role they play in weather and the water cycle. In addition, students will see how other meteorological events occur, including fog, mist, smog, thunder and lightning. Learn about how meteorologists analyze the size, shape and location of clouds in order to determine the effect that they will have on the weather. Doppler radar graphics and a hands-on science experiment help these concepts be easily understood. One of six volumes in the Weather Fundamentals DVD Series in the Schlessinger Science Library.
