Description:

These two websites introduce the reasons for the presence of snow through understandable text. At the first website, created by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, children can learn how Wilson Bently discovered that no two snow crystals are alike. The website presents the seven types of ice crystals and the ingredients that make up snow. The second website, provided by Miami University, addresses how dust affects snow precipitation. Users can find out why some snow types are better for making snowballs than others. The website also supplies translations of many Inuit words for different snow types.
