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.

Climates & Seasons (DVD)
Climates & Seasons (DVD)
D093

This program looks at the wide range of climates in North America and around the world, and examines how factors such as the sun, wind, temperature, precipitation and position of Earth determine the weather for a particular region. Live footage, vivid graphics and a hands-on experiment help to clearly illustrate these concepts. One of six volumes in the Weather Fundamentals DVD Series in the Schlessinger Science Library.

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.

Precipitation comes in many different forms and is caused by a wide variety of forces. But what makes the sky open up? And how is water changed into all of these different forms? Young students will find the answers to these questions in All About Rain, Snow, Sleet & Hail, and learn more about the sky and storm clouds in this engaging program. Two hands-on demonstrations show that air not only has weight, but that warm air rises, while a visit with a meteorologist illustrates how the measurement and observation of rainfall helps in determining the forecast.
