Unschooling Resources: Meteorology
The Cloud Book by Tomie de Paola
A nice picture book about the various cloud types. Whimsical and cute.
by the editors of Klutz
all Klutz books, Disaster Science is exciting and packed with information. Volcanoes, tornadoes,
hurricanes, earthquakes, slides, floods, waves and "crashes" are all covered here in
great detail. Includes tons of pictures (many before and after shots), engaging text, and simple
explanations for everything from why mobile homes don't often survive tornadoes to how
avalanches get started. Highly recommended!
On the Same Day in March
by Marilyn Singer
This sweet picture book explores weather around
the world, all on the same day. Twisters in Texas, hailstones in India, rain in
true! We fly airplanes right into the eye of the hurricane, and we invite you along for the
ride-in Cyberspace!" (post #247)

fringes, dark bands, spokes and more. Find out about them here."
Save a Snowflake for Decades
What's the secret? Superglue!
From the website: "This site is all about
snow crystals and snowflakes -- what they are, where they come from, and just how these
remarkably complex and beautiful structures are created, quite literally, out of thin air."
