Cloud Types


Before going to the beach, you might look outside for signs of clouds or rain that could affect your plans. However, the clouds that you see are more than just determinants of weather conditions. They also help to maintain the energy budget and climate on Earth and are an essential part of the water cycle. In this intearctive resource, adapted from NASA's S'COOL Project Tutorial, learn about how clouds are named and identified.

Fun interactive lesson!

So much fun - I love learning about the clouds since I was young. This pack will come very handy for teachers teaching cloud types. Thanks for sharing.
