Eyewitness Workbooks Weather

by DK




Popular history, science, and geography topics brought out of the classroom and into your home with fast facts, activities, and quizzes.

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 such as the atmosphere, the Sun, wind, the water cycle, climate change, and forecasting; and 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 newfound knowledge with the quick quizzes (with answers supplied). 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 Workbooks series is devised and written with the expert advice of educational and reading consultants and is designed to appeal to children ages 8 years and up. First published in 2007-2009, this series has been fully revised and updated for 2020.
