Synopsis

Exploring Science: Weather an Amazing Fact File and Hands-on Project Book With 16 Easy-to-do Experiments and 250 Exciting Pictures by Robin Kerrod

This title helps you learn what makes weather happen - from the deadly threat of a hurricane to a rainbow's delicate play of light. It features over 250 amazing photographs and illustrations that capture the devastation caused by a severe flood, the split-second flash of lightning, and much more. You can see how people, plants and animals cope with searing heat and bitter cold. To make learning even more exciting, there are lots of simple experiments that you can do, such as testing air pressure, creating static electricity, and making your own weather station. It is a stimulating reference for 8- to 12-year-olds to use at home or school. You can discover the catastrophic combination of circumstances that give twisters the power to suck up houses into their deadly vortex, and the forces of nature that create the exquisite structure of a snowflake. You can visit the hottest, wettest and coldest places on the planet - where the ground gets so dry that it cracks, or where ice storms cause electricity pylons to crash to the ground. Dramatic photographs team up with lively and informative text to explore and explain the workings of weather from different climates all around the world.
