Students explore how weather is measured, the difference between weather and climate, and the factors that affect the weather and climate in six different climatic regions of the United States. They discover that latitude, the tilt of Earth’s axis, and the proximity to large bodies of water affect surface temperatures. They investigate what causes precipitation, and in the process, they learn about the transfer of thermal energy, the water cycle, and effect of winds and ocean currents on weather and climate.
