During the first part of the year we will be exploring the topic of meteorology. When it comes to weather most of us don't want to concern ourselves with it until we have outside activities or want to stay home from school. Though most of you may have an idea of what the topic is about, we will be taking a closer look at the basic concepts behind what it takes to make weather predictions. We will be exploring topics such as atmosphere, winds, the water cycle, air masses and fronts. During this time each of you will learn how to interpret basic instrument readings, weather data and maps to make your own weather predictions and become junior meterologists.
