DESCRIPTION

This Thames & Kosmos Climate & Weather Kit teaches kids about the state of the Earth's atmosphere with 23 hands-on experiments. Build a model of Earth then use it to conduct weather and climate experiments: Trace air currents and recreate ocean currents. Discover how Earth's rotation and revolution and position to the sun influence daily and seasonal weather patterns. Explore the water cycle; make a barometer; track the weather, and more!

The Climate & Weather Kit from Thames & Kosmos includes more than 20 pieces, plus a full-color, 48-page manual. You provide a few common household items, like scissors, glue, and salt.


From the Manufacturer

The state of Earth’s atmosphere affects us all, which explains why the weather is one of the most popular topics of conversation and scientific study. With 23 hands-on experiments, you can investigate specific weather phenomena as well as the climate system in general. Build a model of Earth and its atmosphere and then use it to conduct experiments that show how the global wind system works. Trace air currents from the icy cold poles to the warm equator and back with a wisp of smoke. Model Earth’s heat reservoirs, thermals, and global and local winds. Recreate ocean currents in a small basin of water. Simulate Earth’s rotation and revolution to learn how the sun affects the weather daily and seasonally. Learn about the climatic zones and the composition of the atmosphere. Experiment to see how carbon dioxide levels affect temperature. Explore the hydrological cycle to learn about humidity, clouds, and precipitation. Build a simple barometer, set up a rain gauge, and track the temperature. Full-color, 48-page manual.
