Video Description: Meteorologist Wes Browning helps us explore the Big Picture Question, “How is weather created?” as we learn about weather phenomena and his work to understand the weather and inform us about it.
Quick Ideas for Using the Video:
Using a Ziploc bag, water and blue food coloring have students pour 1/4 cup of water and a few drops of blue food coloring into bag. Seal tightly and tape the bag to a (preferably south-facing) wall. As the water warms in the sunlight the water will evaporate into vapor. As the vapor cools, it will begin changing into liquid (condensation) just like a cloud. When the water condenses enough, the air will not be able to hold it and the water will fall in the form of precipitation.
