Wonderful Weather

Rain, snow and sunshine, our weather is wonderful! But what causes planet Earth to have such a variety of weather conditions? In this workshop, learners will discover how the Sun’s energy creates our weather with visual demonstrations showing the formation of wind and dancing to learn the water cycle. Then we will delve into extreme weather making tornados and lightning in the classroom. You may also wish to explore this topic outside - see the Outdoor Learning section of our website for more information.
