Some subjects are too interesting to be left at school!
Carry on your love of geography and Earth sciences at home with Weather - an activity-packed exploration of weather and how it affects our world, including climate change.
Divided into sections, the book starts with fast facts on topics including the atmosphere, the Sun, wind, the water cycle, climate change, and forecasting; and the book ends with charts of climate zones and weather record breakers.
Using this information, you can complete the puzzles in the main part of the book, plus there are hands-on activities such as making an anemometer to measure wind speed and a rain gauge to measure rainfall.
Finally, test your new-found knowledge with the quick quizzes (with answers supplied, but no peeking!). You can keep track of your achievements throughout with a star-chart to fill in every time you finish a page.
Note to parents: The Eyewitness Project Book series is devised and written with the expert advice of educational and reading consultants and is designed to appeal to children aged 8 years and up.
First published in 2007-2009, this series has been fully revised and updated for 2020.
