Description: Monsoons, microbursts, mesocyclones, oh my! Immerse yourself in the world of meteorology with Weather Wiz Kids. Launched by meteorologist Crystal Wicker, the site is on a mission to introduce children, teachers, and parents to "the fascinating world of weather." To do so, the website divides its resources into four main sections. Under Weather, visitors can learn science and safety facts relating to over a dozen subtopics (such as "Clouds" and "Thunderstorms"). This section also features a Weather Words glossary of relevant vocabulary. Next, under Disasters, users will find resources on major events such as earthquakes and tsunamis. Teachers may want to pay special attention to the Activities subsections (accessible from the left-hand side panels on each natural disaster and weather topic page), as they often include lesson plans. The Experiments page hosts over three dozen activities, each with directions, materials, and a brief description of their purposes. Finally, as the name alludes, the Kid's Zone section is a great place for kids and kids-at-heart, with weather-themed jokes, stories, games, and additional resources. Wondering "What's the difference between el nino and la nina?" or "Why do leaves change color?" You can find those answers (and more) on this page, too, under Kid's Questions.
