WEATHER VS. CLIMATE
The terms “weather” and “climate” are often used interchangeably. But, there is a big difference, and it’s common to be confused over which is which. Understanding the meaning of each term will help you determine whether the storm outside your window is something that is part of a cycle that will change soon…or something that indicates long term change.
- Why do people need to know the weather?

The Atmosphere and The Weather Machine
We live on a very complicated planet. There are 5 layers of the atmosphere…each with distinctly different tasks in helping to make the planet livable! This lesson focuses on the complexity of the atmosphere overhead, and some of the interesting things you may not know about the air surrounding our home planet!
How far up into the air do you think that the atmosphere extends?
Why do you think that the weather we have on earth is different from that of other planets?
Is the temperature that you feel here on the ground the same all the way up through the atmosphere?
