Find Out About Weather with 15 Projects and More Than 260 Pictures by Robin Kerrod

This title comes with 15 projects and more than 260 pictures. It is a fascinating fact file and learn-it-yourself book on weather and climate: what they are and how they happen. You can discover where wind comes from, what a rainbow is, and why there are deserts in some parts of the world but rainforests in others. It includes 15 fantastic practical projects that really help you learn for yourself: measure wind force and rainfall, make your own weather vane, and test the air pressure using a balloon, baking soda and vinegar! It features over 260 images that include step-by-step photographs and explanatory illustrations. It is ideal for home or school use and for 8- to 12-year-olds. Weather is around you all the time, and it is always changing. Is it cloudy or sunny? Is the weather the same all over the country? This lively and practical book tells you all about different climates and seasons. It explains why temperatures rise and fall, how clouds, snow and ice form, and how people are able to forecast the weather. Easy-to-do projects, such as measuring humidity with your own hygrometer and using water, light and a mirror to create a rainbow, will help you to understand how weather works. Find Out About... is a series for young readers who want to explore the exciting world of science. Each book covers a different topic, bringing the subject to life with vibrant photographs, illustrations and diagrams, making it really fun for budding scientists to find out all the fantastic facts for themselves.
