Bucket O' Bookmarks: Site for Kids, Teachers

The latest (January) issue of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society has a pointer to a new Weather Channel web site for kids. The WeatherED section contains a weather encyclopedia grouped into topics such as Hurricanes and Tropical Systems, Heat Waves, and Winter Storms. A glossary ranges from "absolute humidity" to "Zulu time". A Careers in Meteorology section summarizes job types and shows the resumes of several Weather Channel on-air personalities. Weather games include an interactive forecast which uses Flash technology to create a custom forecast display. Teacher resources (registration required) include "standards-based lesson plans" on several topics for various grade levels (3-5 and 6-10).
