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.
